Just over 100 years ago, Theodor Herzl launched the Zionist movement. Fifty years later, after the Holocaust, the State of Israel came into being, established so that Jews anywhere in the world could have a homeland. Yet in the years since, five wars have tested Israel's ability to survive. Influxes of emigrants added to the country's cultural riches yet strained its social fabric, even as Israel's Arab neighbors sought to redress their own grievances through violence. Now Israel's fascinating story is told by renowned historian Martin Gilbert, enhanced with 15 rare facsimile documents, some of which have never before been published.
