    One thought on “Shalom, Friend: The Life and Legacy of Yitzhak Rabin”

    1. I can still remember the day that Yitzhak Rabin was killed. I had been following the news of the peace efforts at the time recently read a bio of Moshe Dayan and an other of Ariel Sharon. For me this was the most honest because the author would often write that there were others who did not agree with some of the statements which Rabin claims to have made at various times. Of the three bios which i have read at times covering the exact events, yet the authors saw the events in very different way [...]

    2. The first half of the book I was struggling through the political settings. I had a hard time morally as well with the in my opinion one sided perspective of the political development en strategies to make Isreal expands its borders. I thought I was a bit aware of the political situation in Isreal but in fact I was/am not at all. From page 200 the history of Judaism got a chapter but in my opinion it was to short to really get a complete view of what was exactly going on at the time Rabin was pr [...]

    3. I read this book during my holidays in Israel. The book is a post-mortem biography written the year after the murder. It gives you some touch of the internal and external struggles Israel has and the role Yitzhak Rabin played and tried to play. Like most biographies critics would say this book is not complete. I would nevertheless recommend this book if you want to read something about this important character and/or if you are interested in some background information about Israel from 1949 - 1 [...]

    4. I admired Rabin. Wanted to know more about the circumstances / reasons that lead to his killing. Of course there are always questions, but in general I got an answer to what I wanted to know: now I know a bit more about the man, his way of thinking and his personal history. Recommend it!
