    The founding of the state of Israel in 1948 offers a dramatic narrative with few parallels in modern history. Here, Tom Segev draws on thousands of declassified documents along with personal diaries and correspondence to reconstruct the unvarnished story of Israel's beginnings. Segev reveals the lofty aspirations that guided the state's leaders as well as the darker side of the Zionist utopia: the friction between early settlers and the immigrants; the lack of good-faith negotiations with the Arabs; the clash between religious and secullar factions; the daily collision of the Zionist myth with the severe realities of life in the new state. An indispensable, bold chronicle. Addenda. 379p.

    "The June 1967 war was a watershed in the history of the modern Middle East. In six days, the Israelis defeated the Arab armies of Egypt, Syria, and Jordan and seized large portions of territory including the West Bank, East Jerusalem, the Gaza Strip, the Sinai Peninsula, and the Golan Heights. With the hindsight of four decades and access to recently declassified documents, two veteran scholars of the Middle East bring together some of the most knowledgeable experts in their fields to reassess the origins of the war and its regional reverberations. Each chapter takes a different perspective from the vantage point of a different participant, those that actually took part in the war, and also the world powers, the United States, Soviet Union, Britain, andFrance, that played important roles behind the scenes. Their conclusions make for sober reading. At the heart of the story was the incompetence of the Egyptian high command under the leadership of Nasser and the rivalry between various Arab players who were deeply suspicious of each other, motives. Israel, on the other side, gained a resounding victory for which, despite previous assessments to the contrary, there was no master plan"--

    Going far beyond a military account, Tom Segev (One Palestine, Complete; The Seventh Million) re-creates the crisis in Israel before 1967, showing how economic recession, a full grasp of the Holocaust's horrors, and the dire threats made by neighbor states combined to produce a climate of apocalypse. Segev depicts Israel's bravado after its victory, the mood revealed in a popular joke in which one soldier says to his friend, 'Let's take over Cairo'; the friend replies, 'Then what shall we do in the afternoon?' Segev challenges the view that the war was inevitable, citing, as cause, a series of disastrous miscalculations.

    A celebrated botonist, who had won world fame as the discoverer of 'wild wheat', Aaron Aaronsohn (1876-1919) created the first Jewish Agricultural Experiement Station in Palestine--then under Turkish rule--in 1910. In World War I, reacting against the oppressice Turkish regime, Aaronsohn founded a Jewish spy organization, NILI, to help the British in the forthcoming battle for Palestine.
