FROM THESE MEN: Seven Founders of the State of Israel
by Peres, Shimon
New York: Wyndham Press, 1979. First Edition. Hardcover. Very good/Very good. A moving tribute to David Ben-Gurion, Levi Eshkol, Berl Katznelson, Nathan Alterman, Ernst David Bergmann, Moshe Haviv, and Yonatan Netanyahu. One of Israel's longest serving and most distinguished politicians, Shimon Peres (1923-2016) was the first person to have served as both Prime Minister and President of the Jewish State. At the time of his retirement in 2014, he was the world's oldest head of state, and was considered the last link to Israel's founding generation. Peres is perhaps best known for engineering the 1994 Israel-Jordan peace treaty, and for the Oslo Accords peace talks with the Palestinian leadership, for which he, Yitzhak Rabin, and Yasser Arafat received the 1994 Nobel Peace Prize. Translated by Philip Simpson. This copy is inscribed and dated by Peres on the half-title, with a letter from Sheres' Chief of Staff laid in. Octavo. Small remainder mark to the bottom edge. Some general shelfwear to the dust jacket; otherwise very good.
