From the Back Cover:

This six-part chronicle of the birth and development of the Jewish state is hosted and narrated by former Israeli Ambassador to the U.S., Abba Eban who also hosted the series' predecessor, "Heritage: Civilization and the Jews". Eban, who played a pivotal role in realizing the dream of a Jewish state, points out that "the series is designed to provide an essential context to an inspiring human story." Among those featured in interviews and rare archival footage are U.S. Presidents Harry Truman and Richard Nixon, world leaders Winston Churchill, David Ben Gurion, Golda Meir, Menachim Begin, Anwar Sadat, Yithak Rabin, and Boutros Boutros Ghali. Together with Eban's first hand testimony this series achieves a diverse perspective of both the Arab and Israeli experience. According to Eban "Israel: A Nation is Born" is a "depiction of the turbulent and dramatic history of Israel, through the conflicts and tensions of five decades, climaxing in the brighter prospects of Arab/Israeli peace."
