Israel at Fifty: Five Decades of Struggle for Peace - Moshe RavivWeidenfeld & Nicolson, 1998, Hardback in Dust Wrapper.
Condition: Very Good — in Very Good Dustwrapper. Gently bruised at the head of the spine and top corners with commensurate ruffling to the dustwrapper.
Illustrated with black and white photographs. From the cover: “Israel will celebrate fifty years of existence in May 1998. A state with a unique heritage, its establishment was the culmination of a long arduous struggle for Jewish independence and sovereignty in the ancient land of Israel. Arab refusal to accept the UN resolution partitioning Palestine into a Jewish and Arab state initiated a period of conflict and war which dominated that first half century. But the years have also been coloured by extraordinary achievements in many fields of endeavour. Above all, this formative period has been characterised by the relentless quest for peace and a resolution to the Arab-Israeli discord.”
