A balanced history of the phenonmenon that is modern Israel,
By A Customer
This review is from: Israel: A History (Paperback)
Martin Gilbert has managed to bring together both a comprehensive and personalised account of what is modern Israel. He brings together the circumstances that have produced modern Israel and the current Arab-Israeli conflict.
I personally enjoyed this history enormously and would recommend it to anyone interested in Israel and it's founding. Please read and recommend.
