Synopsis: For more than 50 years, Yitzhak Rabin, Prime Minister and Defense Minister of Israel, had a direct impact on the political, social and economic fabric of the Jewish State. Unfortunately, from the time that Rabin joined the Palmach, until his assassination in 1995, he accumulated one security failure after another.
Even so, most people view the late Israeli Prime Minister and Defense Minister and the Chief-of-Staff during the Six Day War of 1967 as a wise and courageous leader. In The Rabin File - An Unauthorized Expose, Dr. Uri Milstein delves into Rabin's military performance - from his early involvement in the militia in 1941 to his assassination in 1995 - and reveals for the first time Rabin's controversial security biography.
By vigilantly investigating Rabin, presenting him as a personified reflection of the political and military culture of the State Israel, this riveting and thought-provoking book explains how little children were able to chase the mighty Israeli Defense Forces from the Gaza Strip; how the Hizbullah defeated the IDF in Southern Lebanon; and how Israel turned from a strategic ally of the United States to an American economic burden.
Dr. Milstein researches the principles of military philosophy and war as a means of understanding the behavior of individuals and their civilizations. As a writer and a historian he is neither bashful nor deterred by controversy. His provocative studies and books on the Israeli War of Independence, the Yom Kippur War and the Israeli Paratroopers have earned him much publicity in Israel and abroad.
About the Author: Dr. Uri Milstein was born in Israel in 1940. He is married and has two children. Serving in the Israeli Army as a paratrooper, he fought in the Six Day and Yom Kippur wars.
Milstein received his MA in Philosophy from Hebrew University in 1966, and completed a Ph.D. in political science in 1972. As a lecturer on Israeli military history, Dr. Milstein has taught for a number of prestigious institutions, including Israel Military Industries, the Israeli Air Force and Judea and Samaria College.
One of Israel's foremost scholars and a man with strong convictions, Dr. Milstein is no stranger to controversy. When his Hebrew version of The Rabin File was published in 1995, just a few months before Rabin's assassination, Rabin and his aides tried to ban the book and its author. Despite them, The Rabin File was an Israeli best-seller, with over 10,000 copies sold in one year.
Dr. Uri Milstein has written extensively on Israeli security issues, and has authored books on the Israeli War of Independence, the Yom Kippur War and the History of the Israeli Paratroopers. His book, The General Security Code: The Principle of Survival, discusses in depth the code he has developed and how it reflects on his military philosophy. The Rabin File exemplifies his finest scholarship infused with sophisticated philosophy and insight.
