A BiographyBook - 2015
Draws on a wide range of primary sources in a complex portrait of the internationally respected Israeli diplomat to discuss his early life, unpopularity in his home country and considerable contributions to peace efforts in the Middle East. As a skilled debater, a master of language, and a passionate defender of Israel, Abba Eban's diplomatic presence was in many ways a contradiction unlike any the world has seen since. While he was celebrated internationally for his exceptional wit and his moderate, reasoned worldview, these same qualities painted him as elitist and foreign in his home country.
