Description

A sequel to Sachar's classic History of Israel: From the Rise of Zionism to Our Time, and equally compelling in its .

A sequel to Sachar's classic History of Israel: From the Rise of Zionism to Our Time, and equally compelling in its narrative power and richness of human detail. The author looks at the 1973 Arab-Israeli war, which had a traumatic political aftermath; the attempts by Egypt to restructure its relationship with Israel and the ensuing diplomatic accords, which were overshadowed by the failure of Israel to deal effectively with Palestinian demands for self-determination; and, finally, the Israeli incursion into Lebanon. Throughout, Sachar attempts to distinguish between the verbiage of Zionist nationalism and the actions of an independent sovereign state.

Since the Yom Kippur War, Israel's history has consisted of stark contrasts between dramatic military strikes abroad-Entebbe, Baghdad, Tunis among them-and confusion and violent confrontation at home over such issues as the settlement of the occupied Arab territories and religious extremism. Howard Morley Sachar was an American historian. He was Professor Emeritus of History and International Affairs at the George Washington University in Washington, . and the author of 16 books, as well as numerous articles in scholarly journals, on the subjects of Middle Eastern and Modern European history.

a triumph of comprehensive scholarship which is also a delight to read," this book offers an equally compelling and powerful narrative and a wealth of human detail. The second volume begins where its predecessor left off, tracing the political, social, and economic growth of the Israeli republic from the traumatic aftermath of the Yom Kippur War in 1973 through the Begin and Peres eras.

Israel's history since the Yom Kippur War presents stark contrasts: dramatic military strikes .

Israel's history since the Yom Kippur War presents stark contrasts: dramatic military strikes abroad-Entebbe, Baghdad, Tunis among them-amid confusion, even violent confrontations at home over such issues as the settlement of the occuppied Arab territories and religious extremism. A sequel to Sachar's classic History of Israel: From the Rise of Zionism to Our Time, and equally compelling in its narrative power and richness of human detail, this book begins where its predecessor left off: in the 1973 aftermath of the costliest war in Israel's history.

A HISTORY OF ISRAEL Volume II: From the Aftermath of the Yom Kippur Wa.

A HISTORY OF ISRAEL Volume II: From the Aftermath of the Yom Kippur War. THE second volume of Howard M. Sachar's ''History of Israel,'' covering the period since the 1973 Yom Kippur War, throws into sharp relief the differences between the Israel we once knew - the Israel Mr. Sachar described in the first volume of his history - and the one that faces us, and itself, today. It tells the story of a country whose ethnic, religious and ideological tensions have grown increasingly strained.

A sequel to Sachar's classic History of Israel: From the Rise of Zionism to Our Time, and equally compelling in its narrative power and richness of human detail, this book begins where its predecessor left off: in the 1973 aftermath of the costliest war in Israel's history. It is a fascinating saga and Sachar tells it with the lucidity and incisiveness that have been the hallmark of his earlier writing. Here in full richness of texture is the story of the ethnic "revolution" that brought Menachem Begin to power; the secret diplomacy underlying Anwar al-Sadat's dazzling visit to Jerusalem; the social upheaval convulsing the Arab population of the West Bank; the growth of Palestinian terrorism and of incipient Jewish vigilantism; the longstanding clandestine dialogue between Israel's and Lebanon's political leaders that culminated in Ariel Sharon's ill-starred 1982 invasion. Israel's history since the Yom Kippur War presents stark contrasts: dramatic military strikes abroad--Entebbe, Baghdad, Tunis among them--amid confusion, even violent confrontations at home over such issues as the settlement of the occuppied Arab territories and religious extremism. Approaching its fortieth year of sovereignty, Israel has rarely been at such cross-purposes in its quest for security and identity. Rarely too has the fate of the Jewish nation been as intimately entwined with the foreign and economic strategies of the Great Powers. This book is at once a compelling story and a penetrating analysis of Israel's current difficulties and achievements. It is virtually certain to win recognition alongside its predecessor as the definitive work in its field. About the Author: Howard M. Sachar is Professor of History at George Washington University and the author of nine earlier books on Jewish and Middle Eastern History.
