Description: The bestselling, award-winning author of Fatal Voyage and Genesis 1946 presents a comprehensive biography of Yitzhak Rabin that will publish to tie in with the 50th anniversary of the founding of the state of Israel.

In the Most Revealing Portrait of the Late Israeli leader written to date, and the first to examine Rabin's longtime secret contacts with the PLO, Rabin family friend, confidante, and former Washington Post correspondent Dan Kurzman explores the life and work of the former Israeli prime minister. Tracing Rabin's life from his youth as a member of an elite commando unit to his rise as leader of Israel, and the account of his brutal assassination at the hands of a right-wing Jewish extremist, Kurzman details Rabin's evolution from shy child to desert warrior to peacemaker, and in the process tells the story of a nation's maturation into a modern state striving for peace.

Kurzman draws both on his relationship with Rabin, whom he first knew as a reporter's source during the Six-Day War, and from interviews he conducted with more than 200 people, including top politicians and statesmen from Shimon Peres to Henry Kissinger. It is the most complete portrait yet published of one of the twentieth century's most courageous and visionary statesman.
