“As a chemist, Chaim Weizmann was a man of data and fact. As a diplomat, he was a man of imagination and overarching vision. As a statesman, he employed every facet of his complex intriguing identity to establish the political platform from which the State of Israel would rise. In Chaim Weizmann: A Biography, Jehuda Reinharz and Motti Golani bring to the fore this monumental figure of modern Israeli history in a gripping, precise and humane manner. This riveting account of a man who made Zionism his trade and went on to preside over the Jewish, democratic State of Israel is a very important addition to the collective Jewish library.”
