An insiderís perspective on the life and influence of Israelís first native-born prime minister, his bold peace initiatives, and his tragic assassination

More than two decades have passed since prime minister Yitzhak Rabinís assassination in 1995, yet he remains an unusually intriguing and admired modern leader. A native-born Israeli, Rabin became an inextricable part of his nationís pre-state history and subsequent evolution. This revealing account of his life, character, and contributions draws not only on original research but also on the authorís recollections as one of Rabinís closest aides.

An awkward politician who became a statesman, a soldier who became a peacemaker, Rabin is best remembered for his valiant efforts to resolve the Israeli-Palestinian conflict and for the Oslo Accords. Itamar Rabinovich provides extraordinary new insights into Rabinís relationships with powerful leaders including Bill Clinton, Jordanís King Hussein, and Henry Kissinger, his desire for an Israeli-Syrian peace plan, and the political developments that shaped his tenure. The author also assesses the repercussions of Rabinís murder: Netanyahuís ensuing election and the rise of Israelís radical right wing.
