About this title


This book offers a reappraisal of David Ben-Gurion's role in Jewish-Israeli history from the perspective of the twenty-first century, in the larger context of the Zionist "renaissance," of which he was a major and unique exponent. Some have described Ben-Gurion's Zionism as a dream that has gone sour, or a utopia doomed to be unfulfilled. Now - after the dust surrounding Israel's founding father has settled, archives have been opened, and perspective has been gained since Ben-Gurion's downfall - this book presents a fresh look at this statesman-intellectual and his success and tragic failures during a unique period of time that he and his peers described as the "Jewish renaissance." The resulting reappraisal offers a new analysis of Ben-Gurion's actual role as a major player in Israeli, Middle Eastern, and global politics.

Book Description:

This book is a reappraisal of David Ben-Gurion's intellectual origins and actual role as the founding father of Israel from the perspective of the twenty-first century. Based on a large number of records heretofore not published in English, the book describes and analyzes the man and his unique period of ascendance, which he and his peers described as the "Jewish Renaissance," in a new, multi-dimensional fashion. Combining his role and the realities of his time in the Middle East and the global arena, which was missing in earlier publications, the book finally explains Ben-Gurion's tragic demise.
