Description

From his youth as a soldier to his service in government, Ariel Sharon has personified Israel's drive for security. His leadership during the Six-Day and Yom Kippur wars made him a national hero and propelled him into politics. His commitment to protect his people underscored his election to prime minister in 2001. But within months of taking office, daily suicide bombings in Israel and the 9/11 attacks shook the Western world--thrusting Ariel Sharon into the center of international affairs. Throughout his life, Sharon kept a meticulous record of events--personal notes, diaries, military directives, correspondence, and thousands of other documents--and the conversations he conducted with world leaders including George W. Bush, Tony Blair, Vladimir Putin, Kofi Annan, Hosni Mubarak, Mahmoud Abbas, and more. Gilad Sharon, the prime minister's youngest son and close confidant, has combed through his father's vast archive to offer an intimate and compelling look at one man's evolution into one of the world's most influential figures. Filled with news-making revelations, "Sharon" is the anatomy of being prime minister, a dazzling portrait of a legendary leader and the nation he helped build.
