Description - Ben-Gurion's Political Struggles, 1963-1967 by Zaky Shalom
An essential insight into this central figure in the life of Israel and Zionism. This book explores the years that built up to the Six Day War, as he entered his eighties, and details crucial issues and events the World is still grappling with. Ben-Gurion led the struggle to establish the state in 1948 and became its leader, but in 1963 he resigned, citing personal reasons. This text examines this fascinating period in depth. Levi Eshkol took over the posts of Prime Minister and Defense Minister. But Ben-Gurion remained active politically and their rivalry grew. In June 1965, the Mapai Party split, with Ben-Gurion establishing Rafi (List of Israeli Workers), which won ten Knesset seats in the following election. This is an excellent book for all those interested in gaining an understanding of this key period in the life of one the Twentieth century's most influential figures.
