From Theodor Herzl to the Roadmap for Peace

Just over 100 years ago, Theodor Herzl launched the Zionist movement. Fifty years later, after the Holocaust, the State of Israel came into being, established so that Jews anywhere in the world could have a homeland. Yet in the years since, five wars have tested Israel's ability to survive. Influxes of emigrants added to the country's cultural riches yet strained its social fabric, even as Israel's Arab neighbors sought to redress their own grievances through violence. Now Israel's fascinating story is told by renowned historian Martin Gilbert, enhanced with 15 rare facsimile documents, some of which have never before been published.

Martin Gilbert was educated at Magdalen College, Oxford. In 1962, he was appointed a Fellow of Merton College, Oxford, and in 1968 he became Winston Churchill's official biographer. He was in Israel during the October War of 1973 and came under Syrian shellfire on the Golan Heights. His Jewish History Atlas is a classic reference and he has been a visiting professor at both the Tel Aviv and Hebrew Universities. He has also written histories of the First and Second World Wars, of D-Day, of the day the war ended (in 1945), and of the Holocaust.
