Note: 
Written by an eminent historian, this book is arranged as 28 double-paged spreads, each intermingling Gilbert's clear, well-researched narrative with abundant historical photographs. The two-page spreads cover topics such as Theodor Herzl and the founding of modern Zionism, pre-World War I settlement, the opening of Hebrew University, the War of Independence, and the exodus from Arab lands. The story concludes with Israel in the twenty-first century. Sidebars highlight individuals whose life stories have impacted Israel ’s history - people like Yitzhak Rabin and Moshe Dayan , Judah Magnes, Vladimir Jabotinsky, Hannah Szenes, Ilan Ramon, Ehud Barak, and even Harry Truman. Adding to the book’s appeal is its inclusion of several dozen facsimile documents, tucked into folds and pockets of its oversized pages, representing significant moments in Israel ’s history.
