Ben-Gurion: The Burning Ground Kindle Edition by Shabtai Teveth (Author)Cited by:   David Ben-Gurion was a mythic figure, the founding father of Israel and a  modern-day prophet, but he was also a real man who stormed through history on human legs.

It was my great privilege to know him and work with him for many years. This book is not a memoir of my time with Ben-Gurion, but it is inevi­tably shaped by my time with : Knopf Doubleday Publishing Group. “The book includes some intimate details of Ben-Gurion’s private life that put the great man in a new and unaccustomed light.” More than one paradox emerges from Segev’s biography.

An excellent book on Ben Gurion, it is partially a written biography on Ben Gurion, partially a Q and A between Peres and David Landau. Shimon Perea unique involvement lets this book have unique antedoctes though also leads to the possibility that Peres is self serving in describing his involvement.

Fantastic, worthwhile read/5. Bar-Zohar paints a very complete image of Ben-Gurion in this classic about the Old Man.

The author depicts The First Prime Minister of Israel objectively, with his flaws and virtues, good and bad decisions. It also follows a fine train of thought, and one can get an insight of Ben-Gurions thought processes/5.

I really enjoyed reading this Book about David Ben-Gurion, I Hadn't really studied or read specifically about him. I knew about him in context to Israeli history and the forming of a Nation and as Prime minister.

I really didn't know the man, through this book you get more than a glance/5. Online shopping from a great selection at Books Store.

Historian and journalist Tom Segev announces his thesis in the title of his latest book, “A State at Any Cost: The Life of David Ben-Gurion.”. This is a book written by someone who evidently assumes the reader is very familiar with both Ben-Gurion and the history of the founding of the State of Israel.

This reader is not sufficiently familiar so much of the book is difficult to follow.4/5. About Ben-Gurion Part of the Jewish Encounter series Israel’s current president gives us a dramatic and revelatory biography of Israel’s founding father and first prime minister.

Shimon Peres was in his early twenties when he first met David Ben-Gurion. The book was originally published last year in the United States (as “Ben-Gurion: Father of Modern Israel”), but nevertheless I’d hoped it would be adapted for the Israeli reader.

According to Shapira, Ben-Gurion’s spirit of political leadership – until World War II – was characterized by the influence of Lenin. Now, for the first time, an Israeli historian presents a biography that makes the squat man with the Einsteinesque hair easier to read, in large part by looking not just at Ben-Gurion the state-builder, but Ben-Gurion the man.

Ben-Gurion: Father of Modern Israel, by Anita Shapira provides what is probably the most intimate yet unflinching portrait to date of a man revered and : Yale University Press.

David Ben-Gurion cast a great shadow during his lifetime, and his legacy continues to be sharply debated to this day. There have been many books written about the life and accomplishments of the Zionist icon and founder of modern Israel, but this new biography by eminent Israeli historian Anita Shapira strives to get to the core of the complex.

It is only recently that David Ben-Gurion ceased to be, for the sake of the official record books, Israel’s longest-serving prime minister. That honor now belongs to Benjamin Netanyahu, even as.

Ben-Gurion saw the importance of cooperation with France also, which was pivotal in the development of the nuclear reactor in Dimona. But this is no hagiography. Ben-Gurion’s failings as a moral exemplar are prominent throughout the book. The reader is left in no doubt that Ben-Gurion was a complex personality riddled with contradictions.

“Considered one of the most scholarly heads of state in human history,” Ben-Gurion was also a prolific author; few were better qualified to write a “personal history” of Israel (New Jewish Encyclopedia, 48). With over black-and-white photographic illustrations and six maps.

Israel’s First Prime Minister Was Complicated. So Is This Book About His Life. In “A State at Any Cost,” Tom Segev argues that David Ben-Gurion was an indispensable leader, “although not Author: Francine Klagsbrun.

[]Pages:   Not since President Dwight Eisenhower's message to Ben Gurion, during the Suez crisis in Novemberhad an American president been so blunt with an Israeli prime minister.

The specific demands that were presented to Ben-Gurion on how the U.S. inspection visits to Dimona should be executed remained word-for-word in the new letter.

Ben Gurion Airport (Hebrew: נמל התעופה בן-גוריון ‎; Arabic: مطار بن غوريون الدولي ‎) (IATA: TLV, ICAO: LLBG), commonly known by its Hebrew acronym as Natbag (נתב״ג), is the main international airport of Israel and the busiest airport in the country, located on the northern outskirts of the city of Lod, which is about 45 km (28 mi) northwest of Location: Central District, Israel.

In particular, Shumsky focuses on the writings and policies of five key Zionist leaders from the Habsburg and Russian empires in central and eastern Europe in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries—Leon Pinsker, Theodor Herzl, Ahad Ha’am, Vladimir Ze’ev Jabotinsky, and David Ben-Gurion—to offer a very pointed critique of.

Octo – December 1, David Ben-Gurion (16 October – 1 December ) was the first Prime Minister of Israel. He was a leading Zionist campaigner before the establishment of the Jewish state, and played an instrumental role in Israel when the British Mandate in Palestine ended.

Prices and availability are subject to change. The authors acknowledge that whether or not the book accurately portrays Ben-Gurion and shapes his legacy is subject to debate.

It was their intent that “in some sense this book is a dialogue with the future, which will need to choose what of Ben-Gurion’s legacy it elects to follow.” David Ben-Gurion, nee David Gruen, was born on October.

But there’s another, more meaningful reason that Segev’s page new book, “David Ben-Gurion: A State at All Costs” (in Hebrew, Keter Books), discusses at length the four women with whom Ben-Gurion had affairs.

“He was regularly determining the fate of the nation,” Segev : Ofer Aderet. Synopsis. Born in Poland inDavid Ben-Gurion was Israel's first prime minister (, ) and defense minister (; ).
