9780195046236: A History of Israel: Volume II: From the Aftermath of the Yom Kippur War (Oxford Paperbacks)

A sequel to Howard Sachar's classic History of Israel: From the Rise of Zionism to Our Time, which Commentary called "monumental...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.
With lucidity and incisiveness, Sachar presents the fascinating saga of the ethnic "revolution" that brought Menachem Begin to power; the social upheavals that have shaken the Arab population of the West Bank; the growth of Palestinian terrorism and of incipient Jewish vigilantism; and the clandestine dialogue between Israel's and Lebanon's political leaders that culminated in Ariel Sharon's ill-starred 1982 military invasion.
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. Covering all the dramatic milestones since the mid-seventies, Sachar explores Israel's current malaise and the extent to which the fate of the Jewish nation rests on the foreign and economic strategies of the Great Powers.
Both a compelling story and a penetrating analysis of Israel's current difficulties and achievements, this volume stands as a brilliant successor to a book critics and scholars have recognized as the definitive work in the field.
