Eric Silver, who spent ten years in Israel as correspondent for The Guardian, makes no claim to have written the definitive biography, but he writes with objectivity and critical understanding of this dedicated, stubborn, complex and, to many who had to deal with him, exasperating man. Good use is made of Begin's own writings as well as many interviews with people close to him in public or private life.
