A History of Israel: From the Rise of Zionism to Our Time
A History of Israel: From the Rise of Zionism to Our Time
By Howard M. Sachar
Knopf, 1976, 883 pp

Obviously a labor of love, but at the same time a reasonably objective and largely successful effort to write a history of Israel that will stand the test of time. Sachar is very much at home both in the Zionist pre-history of Israel and in the evolution of the Middle East in modern times.
