Dan lucidly describes the colorful personalities and complex political activities that lead to creating the State of Israel in 1948. He begins with the first Zionist World Congress in 1897 and follows through to David Ben-Gurion's proclamation of Israeli sovereignty to the United Nations in 1948. Forty years later, the author voices his hope for peace in the region, despite the tremendous obstacles. This book is particularly timely against the background of the current unrest and tension in Israel. Over 200 photographs contribute to the book's appeal. Strongly recommended for public libraries.
