The Prime Ministers is the first and only insider account of Israeli politics from the founding of the Jewish State to the near-present day.

It reveals stunning details of life-and-death decision-making, top-secret military operations and high level peace negotiations. The Prime Ministers brings readers into the orbits of world figures, including Menachem Begin, Yitzhak Rabin, Ronald Reagan, Jimmy Carter, Henry Kissinger, Yasser Arafat, Margaret Thatcher, Princess Diana and the Lubavitcher Rebbe. The Prime Ministers is an enthralling political memoir, and a precisely crafted prism through which to view current Middle East affairs.

The Prime Ministers presents first-hand accounts of major historical events:

  • Menachem Begin’s decision to bomb Saddam Hussein’s nuclear reactor
  • Yitzhak Rabin’s handling of the Entebbe rescue mission
  • The Egypt-Israel peace process
  • The shelling of the Irgun arms ship, the Altalena
  • Deir Yessin

It offers keen observations of key personalities, and unforgettable descriptions of political rivalries, diplomatic blunders, White House and Buckingham Palace banquets and more, to bring Israel’s history to life.
