About this product
- DescriptionA marvelous achievement . . . Anyone curious about the extraordinary six days of Arab-Israeli war will learn much from it. The Ecomist Tom Segev's acclaimed One Palestine, Complete and The Seventh Million overturned accepted views of the history of Israel. Now, in 1967, he brings his masterful skills to the watershed year when six days of war reshaped the country and the entire region.Going far beyond a military account, Segev re-creates the apocalyptic climate in Israel before the war as well as the country's bravado after its victory. He introduces the legendary figures Moshe Dayan, Golda Meir, Gamal Abdel Nasser, and Lyndon Johnson and an epic cast of soldiers, lobbyists, refugees, and settlers. He reveals as never before Israel's intimacy with the White House, and the political rivalries that sabotaged any chance of peace. Above all, Segev challenges the view that the war was inevitable, showing that behind the bloodshed was a series of disastrous miscalculations.Vibrant and original, 1967 is sure to stand as the definitive account of that pivotal year.
