Review:

A complex portrait of a genuinely great man. -- Dan Rather, CBS News

An outstanding analysis. -- Thomas L. Friedman

Written by the reporters and editors of The Jerusalem Report, and drawn from interviews with the people who knew him best, Shalom, Friend: The Life & Legacy Of Yitzhak Rabin is a gripping, authoritative, entirely new biography tracing the extraordinary life of Yitzhak Rabin, warrior and peacemaker, from his birth in Jerusalem in 1922 to his untimely death by an assassin's bullet on November 4, 1995. Shalom, Friend covers such events as his courtship of young Leah Schlossberg (who served under him in the Palmah); his role in Israel's War of Independence, his triumph in the Six Day War, his ambassadorial years in Washington DC, his first prime ministership (during which he authorized the raid on Entebbe and that ended in scandal and resignation), his re-entry into political life and a second prime ministership, his dealings with seven American presidents from Johnson to Clinton, his domestic relationships with Israeli politicians David Ben-Gurion, Moshe Dayan, Golda Meir, Ariel Sharon, and Shimon Peres, and his eventual coming to terms with the man who was once his worst enemy -- Yasser Arafat. Shalom, Friend also provides in-depth accounts of the events that took place after the assassination: Arafat's historic "shivah" call on Leah Rabin; grand-daughter Noa Ben-Artzi's eulogy that brought Israel and the world to tears; the reaction among right-wing settlers; and the exposure of the assassination plot and the security failures that allowed it to succeed. Rich in facts, personal anecdotes, quotes, stories and opinions, written with clarity and care by experts, Shalom, Friend not only give us a dramatic portrayal of a great man's life, but a needed historical perspective on Israel yesterday and today, as well as an important look at what Rabin had in store for tomorrow had he lived to pursue the policies and path for peace he so painstakingly crafted. -- Midwest Book Review
