The Story of Israel by Martin Gilbert

Sir Martin Gilbert, who has written many books on the history of Zionism and Israel, plugs his newly published book, The Story of Israel, on totallyjewish.com.  The book focuses on primary documents of what he calls “the miracle that is modern Israel.”

From the article:

Israel at sixty is cause for reflection, and rejoicing. Among the nations of the world, Israel is at the centre of media attention and (dare one say it) media misrepresentation. Hardly a day passes without some negative portrayal…

My new book, The Story of Israel – the eightieth book that I have written since I first put pen to paper forty-five years ago – seeks to tell the other side of the story: the story of Israel’s long struggle to become a modern, vibrant nation, despite the perils that have confronted it during its relatively short existence.
