Israel: A History
"Israel is a small and relatively young country, but since the day of its creation more than half a century ago, its turbulent history has placed it at the center of the world stage. In this account, Martin Gilbert traces Israel's history from the struggles of its pioneers in the nineteenth century up to the present day."--BOOK JACKET.
