Présentation de l'éditeur

BROTHERS AT WAR, a new book [May 2011] from Quid Pro Books, is Jerold S. Auerbach's probing and poignant exploration of the tragedy of the Altalena, the doomed ship whose arrival in Israel ignited Jewish fratricidal conflict only weeks after its declaration of statehood in 1948. The destruction of the Altalena, with sixteen of its fighters killed by Israeli soldiers in a bitter two-day battle, threatened the new nation with civil war.

This is the first history of the Altalena by a historian and the first to locate it within the context of ancient Jewish and contemporary Israeli history. The Altalena remains embedded in Israeli memory, Auerbach suggests, still framing unresolved issues of political legitimacy in the Jewish state.

Identified as "America's foremost intellectual exponent of right-wing Zionism," Jerold Auerbach is the author of nine books including HEBRON JEWS: MEMORY AND CONFLICT IN THE LAND OF ISRAEL (2009), a history of the world's oldest continuing Jewish community. His essays have appeared in the Wall Street Journal, Commentary, The New York Times, The Jewish Press, Jerusalem Post, Midstream, and American Thinker.

Auerbach has been a Guggenheim Fellow, Fulbright Lecturer at Tel Aviv University, Visiting Scholar at the Harvard Law School, and recipient of two College Teachers Fellowships from the National Endowment for the Humanities. He is Professor Emeritus of History at Wellesley College.

Also available by Quid Pro Books are republications of two of Jerold Auerbach's previous acclaimed books: RABBIS AND LAWYERS and JACOB'S VOICES. As with these previous books, the digital edition of BROTHERS AT WAR contains true ebook formatting, active Table of Contents, all photographs from the print edition, bibliographical notes, and a full subject-matter Index. The cover photo to BROTHERS AT WAR, recording the actual event, is by the famed war photographer Robert Capa and is licensed from Magnum Photos. The book features eight other fascinating photographs.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Interesting history not a lot of Americans know about 8 octobre 2011
Par michele veade - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
Until I read this book by the Wellesly historian Jerold Auerbach, I had no idea that the state of Israel had something like a brief civil war, Israelis killing their brothers. The author tells the interesting story of how a ship from France with immigrants and munitions became the focal point of a power struggle between Begin and Ben-Gurion -- really between two very different visions of how Israel should deal with its enemies and politics. It reads like a drama, is well written, and argues that the same dynamic may repeat itself someday. And there's even an analogy to Washington and the Whiskey Rebellion. I recommend it.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Top notch 9 octobre 2011
Par Dave Stern - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
Well written and provocative analysis of a topic that has been underreserached in Zionist historiography due to wall to wall ideological unanimity in Israeli universities. Auerbach is a fist rate scholar who gratefully has applied his prodigious talents to Zionism and Jewish themes.

Auerbach turns an important story in Israel's early history into a genuine page-turner. It is crisply written and compellingly told. Likewise important, for Jews (and non-Jews) of a certain age, who were schooled that Ben Gurion had no choice but to order the IDF to fire upon the Altelana -- for the good of the new country -- Auerbach gives us reasons to rethink that account. Whether one accepts Auerbach's conclusions at the end, or not, this is a book that is worth buying, reading and thinking about.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 The Altalena "affair" written by a conservative historian. Well-balanced and thorough. 18 août 2013
Par Richard Fein - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
I have read a great deal about this piece of history, and as my father was the captain of the Altalena (Monroe Fein), I have also heard and read his narrative. This book places the events of June 1948 into an historical context which, in its detail and poignancy, reads as history should - factual and relevant. The author has given us the capacity to see these events in relation to those of other times in history, starting with the Roman era. And while I do not agree with every conclusion he draws, I commend Professor Auerbach for his thoughtfully written work. If you are interested in Israeli history, whether ancient or modern, you cannot avoid the issues raised in this book. I won't say more than that I recommend this small book for reading carefully through. It arrives in places I did not think it would, and, written as concisely as it is, has the power to change your thinking.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Riveting account of a tragic moment in Israel's history 7 août 2013
Par Steve S - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
Jerry Auerbach brings to life the Altalena affair, a little-remembered crisis when Jews killed Jews at the dawn of the state of Israel in 1948. In Brothers at War: Israel and the Tragedy of the Altalena, Auerbach has meticulously documented the missteps and misunderstandings that ultimately led to lethal conflict off the beach at Tel Aviv. Even though Auerbach makes no bones about his right-wing sympathies where Israel is concerned, Brothers at War is satisfyingly fair and balanced in its account of the events surrounding the Altalena incident and in its treatment of the people involved on both sides from David Ben Gurion and Menachem Begin on down. This is a must-read for anyone who wants to learn about Israel's tumultuous early days, and how the Altalena affair's echoes were felt in Israeli politics for a generation.
