The book we will be talking about this time is Jabotinsky: A Life and it is by Hillel Halkin, a non-fiction story. It is about Vladimir Jabotinsky (1880-1940) being born a man of huge paradoxes and contradictions and many have been the most misunderstood of all Zionist politicians-- a first-rate novelist, a celebrated Russian journalist, and the founder of the branch of Zionism now headed by Benjamin Netanyahu. This biography undertakes to answer central questions about Jabotinsky as a writer, a political thinker, and a leader. Hillel Halkin sets aside the stereotypes to which Jabotinsky has been reduced by his would-be followers and detractors alike.
