This is an auction for 1967: ISRAEL, THE WAR, AND THE YEAR THAT TRANSFORMED THE MIDDLE EAST, by Tom Segev.

"It is now 40 years since the Six Days' War, in which Israel routed the armies of Egypt, Syria, and Jordan. Segev views the events leading to the war as well as the aftermath with a predictable bias. Still, many of his revelations are both startling and credible. A substantial portion of the book is devoted to an analysis of Israeli society on the eve of the war. Segev portrays a nation plagued by disillusionment, communal tensions, and anxiety about national survival. The idealism that inspired the early Zionist pioneers had waned, and the Ashkenazi and Sephardic communities seemed increasingly resentful of each other. Segev asserts that the outbreak of war was hardly inevitable and was precipitated by gross miscalculations by both sides."
- Booklist (US)

"Today we know that Israel's triumph in 1967 was a Pyrrhic victory. Tom Segev's 1967 makes that more clear than anything written on the subject . . . Segev documents this historic tragedy brilliantly, authoritatively, as no one has before."
- Ha'aretz (Israel)

"The year 1967 divides the history of Israel in two: what came before and what came after. Tom Segev's book makes this abundantly clear, and demonstrates the difference between a military victory and a political one."
- Daniel Barenboim review:

"Rated by the Economist Magazine as one of the best books of 2007. I recommend this book to anyone who wants to gain a greater understanding of Israel and their view of the Middle East."
