Israel: An Illustrated History (Oxford Illustrated Histories (Y/A)) by Daniel J. Schroeter

All of the influential people, the historic sites, and the notable events are here. Daniel Schroeters fascinating history includes the foundation of the ancient Kingdom of Israel, the development of the modern Zionist movement, the legacy of World War II and the Holocaust, the creation of statehood, the conquest of new Arab territory, and the growth of the Palestinian Liberation Organization. With stunning artwork and photographs, Israel: An Illustrated History provides a thorough introduction to the history of Israel in a beautiful keep-sake edition. Profusely illustrated with photographs, historical artifacts, works of art, and facsimile documents, chapters profile notable personalities such as Theodor Herzl, David Ben-Gurion, Golda Meir, Menachim Begin, Yasir Arafat, and Yitzhak Rabin. Readers will find sidebars on political figures such as Natan Sharansky, government organizations such as the Mossad, and cultural institutions such as the Israel Philharmonic Orchestra. Primary sources such as Biblical passages, excerpts from Herzls Der Judenstadt, a diary from the first Aliyah, and the U.N. partition resolution of 1947 bring Israels history to life; landmark structures such as the Western (or Wailing) Wall, the Second Temple, and excavations of the City of David and the Dead Sea caves add to the visual narrative. A glossary, chronology, and a list of Israels prime ministers and presidents make this beautiful book an invaluable reference.
