Description

This autobiographical account of the career of Edwin Herbert Samuel, the second Viscount and son of the famous Liberal politician, is distinguished both for the historical importance and for the content and incisiveness of the writing. The book will prove fascinating to readers who enjoy good autobiography, especially those interested in following the saga of Palestine and Israel as told by one who has observed it closely for more than fifty years.

The current volume presents material on Julius Simon's Zionist life and activity from the beginning of the century until the establishment of the state of Israel. Selected letters and documents, a chronological table, and an index are included.
