Rabin of Israel by Robert Slater( Book )

24 editions published between 1975 and 1993 in English and Hebrew and held by 695 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The historic elevation of Yitzhak Rabin to prime minister of Israel in 1992 brought new hope for lasting peace in the Middle East. His Labor party's triumph signaled a new attitude on the part of the Israeli people, a desire for an end to decades of wearying conflict. Yet this man in whom so many have placed their hopes remains an enigma. Rabin, a fierce and uncompromising military leader whose actions as chief of staff of the Israeli Defense Forces during the Six Day War led to Israeli control of the West Bank and the Golan Heights, seemed poised to surrender at least part of those gains in the name of peace. Robert Slater, whose acclaimed biography of Moshe Dayan was nominated for the National Jewish Book Award, gives us a fully realized portrait of Rabin based on interviews with Rabin's colleagues, friends, family and Rabin himself, in this, the first biography of the prime minister. Rabin emerges as a shy, diffident, even mysterious man, whose changing fortunes seem to echo the contradictions within himself. His first tenure as prime minister during the mid-1970s was marked by both his resolute actions during the Entebbe hostage crisis and his ignominious resignation as the result of a petty financial scandal. Yet Rabin was returned to office at one of the most crucial moments in Israel's history

23 editions published between 1994 and 2001 in English and Korean and held by 597 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"GE's John F. Welch knows a thing or two about change, about management, about getting things done. In 1981, when Welch took over as CEO, GE was only 10th in market value among American public companies. By 1993, GE sales had surged to $60.6 billion and the company was sharing the market lead with the likes of Exxon and AT & T. How did Jack Welch do it? The answer: Welch implemented a tough but flexible agenda that contained some of the very best business ideas corporate America had ever seen. What if you could take some of those ideas and apply them to your own corporation, your own management style? What if you knew the secret to Jack Welch's success? 'Get Better or Get Beaten!' examines 31 of those secrets in a fast-paced, easy-to-digest format that reads like a "manager's little instruction book." Here are the personal beliefs, bywords, principles, and techniques that helped Jack Welch become the most respected CEO in America."--Publisher description

Six months later with the crisp smell of cold cash in the air, Cisco president and CEO John Chambers vowed to change the world. Who knew that in a matter of days disaster would strike?"

"Through exclusive interviews with Chambers and Cisco's top executives and unparalleled access to Cisco's private forums, Slater reveals the confidential workings and insider decisions behind what was nothing short of a business miracle before the vision went temporarily awry.
