Golda Meir

Author(s): Elinor Burkett


This is a major new authoritative biography of the first elected female leader in Western history. She served as Prime Minister of Israel from 1969-1974 and led her country through many tense moments such as when she ordered the Mossad attack on the assassins of the Israeli athletes in Munich. Mining unpublished archival treasures, this is at last the authoritative biography that revises the perception of this towering witness to modern history. As the first Iron Lady, she created the model for future female political leaders such as Margaret Thatcher, who admired her. In this riveting new biography, she receives a warts and all look at her life as one of the most iconic female presences of the 20th century whose approach offers answers for our century's problems.
