Battling for peace : a memoir by Shimon Peres( Book )

18 editions published between 1994 and 1996 in English and held by 1,016 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

One of the great statesmen of our century, Shimon Peres, winner of the 1994 Nobel Peace Prize, has shaped the history of Israel and the future of the Middle East. In the seventies, as Israel's minister of defense, he engineered the legendary Entebbe raid against PLO terrorists; in the eighties, as prime minister, he saved the Israeli economy from near collapse; and as foreign minister, Shimon Peres is now a key negotiator in the peace accords that he helped bring about. In Battling for Peace, he tells, for the first time, the story of his amazing career. As we follow Peres from his ancestral home in Poland to Israel, from the youth village of Ben-Shemen to Kibbutz Alumot, from youth movement leader to prime minister, we are introduced both to a man and to a nation. A thoughtful, disciplined, and immensely resourceful young man, Peres was singled out by Israel's great leader David Ben-Gurion, who appointed him, while still in his twenties, director general of the Ministry of Defense. From this point on, Peres's life was inseparable from his country's history. Peres writes of his bitter quarrels with Golda Meir and Yitzhak Rabin, and of his great admiration for Ben-Gurion, Moshe Dayan, and Francois Mitterrand. He discusses the origins of Israel's nuclear program, and tells how he led the way toward the Oslo agreement, describing his secret talks with King Hussein in London ten years ago, and revealing how a chance for peace was thwarted by self-serving politicians and timid American diplomacy

Piety and power : the world of Jewish fundamentalism by David Landau( Book )

10 editions published in 1993 in English and held by 523 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

With the rare gift of a storyteller, David Landau takes the reader inside the little-known world of the haredim - the bearded, black-clothed Jewish fundamentalists. Decimated by the Holocaust, this sect has enjoyed a dramatic revival that has caused tensions everywhere and a bitter battle for the soul of Israel. Piety and Power describes life in the self-contained haredi ghettos in London, New York, and Jerusalem, where Hasidic rabbis reign supreme and strict rules govern every aspect of life. Landau takes the reader into homes marked by warm family life and strict sexual codes, and into yeshivas, the intellectual core of the community, where young men spend decades as full-time students of the Torah. For many readers, Jews and Gentiles alike, this will be a disturbing book. It depicts an aggressive, assertive fundamentalism in an expansive and self-confident mood, certain of its divine right to win souls and influence the Jewish people and to dictate its views on who is a Jew

Arik : the life of Ariel Sharon by David Landau( )

6 editions published between 2014 and 2016 in English and held by 36 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From the former editor in chief of Haaretz, the first in-depth, comprehensive biography of Ariel Sharon, the most dramatic and imposing Israeli political and military leader of the last forty years. The life of Ariel Sharon spans much of modern Israel's history. A commander in the Israeli Army from its inception in 1948, Sharon participated in the 1948 War of Independence, played decisive roles in the 1956 Suez War and the Six-Day War of 1967, and is credited here with the shift in the outcome of the Yom Kippur War of 1973. After leaving the professional army, Sharon became a political leader and served in numerous governments, most prominently as the defense minister during the 1982 Lebanon War in which he bore "personal responsibility," according to the state's commission of inquiry, for massacres of Palestinian civilians by Lebanese militia. As a general and as a politician, he championed the construction of Israeli settlements in the occupied West Bank and Gaza. But as prime minister, he performed a dramatic reversal: orchestrating Israel's unilateral disengagement from the Gaza Strip. Landau brilliantly chronicles Sharon's surprising about-face, combining the immediacy of firsthand reportage with the analysis and independent insight of a historian's perspective. Sharon suffered a stroke in January 2006 and remains in a persistent vegetative state. This biography recounts the life of the man who is considered by many to be Israel's greatest military leader and political statesman, illustrating how Sharon's leadership transformed Israel, and how his views were shaped by the changing nature of Israeli society
