Description
Based in part on a series of interviews with journalist David Landau, Israel's current president offers this insider's view of the nation's first prime minister. Illustrated with 12 pages of black and white photographs, Shimon Peres's biography suggests that David Ben-Gurion struggled to balance Israel's secular and religious concerns, while forging ties with the West and seeking compromise with Palestine. Peres also expounds upon Ben-Gurion's legacy, portraying him as a man of peace whose vision is still influential in the 21st century.

"In revisiting the career of his mentor, Shimon Peres presents a uniquely human portrait of David Ben-Gurion—a master strategist with a long view of history and an abiding vision for Israel's future. Peres brings his nation's founding father to life with the energy, candor, and wisdom he's become known for in his six decades of public service."—Bill Clinton
