"With his characteristic broad intellectual sweep and gifted pen, Hillel Halkin brings us not only an insightful biography of one of Zionism’s most important figures, but a grand rendering of the cultural and political landscapes in which Jabotinsky grew, wrote and toiled. Our understanding of not only Jabotinsky, but of all of Zionism, cannot but be deeply enriched by this memorable volume.”--Daniel Gordis, author of Menachem Begin: The Battle for Israel’s Soul.

Jabotinsky: A Life is the 15th book in the Jewish Lives Biography Series, a collaboration of the Leon D. Black Foundation and Yale University Press.
