Publisher Description

This #1 New York Times international bestseller tells the epic history of Israel's birth through the eyes of two generations of Jews as they fight to reclaim their homeland. Leon Uris tactfully meshes together the story of two 19th century Jewish brothers who seek refuge in Palestine with the 20th century story of how Israel gained its independence after World War II. Rich in historical accuracy and compelling characters, this literary classic sheds light on the long history of the Jewish diaspora, their struggles for liberation, and the costs of war. One of Uris’s best works, Exodus is just as relevant today as it was when it was first published in 1958. The 1960 film adaptation starring Paul Newman was nominated for three Academy Awards. 


“Exodus is an international publishing phenomenon--the towering novel of the twentieth century's most dramatic geopolitical event. Leon Uris magnificently portrays the birth of a new nation in the midst of enemies--the beginning of an earthshaking struggle for power. Here is the tale that swept the world with its fury: the story of an American nurse, an Israeli freedom fighter caught up in a glorious, heartbreaking, triumphant era. Here is Exodus --one of the great best-selling novels of all time.” – From the Publisher


"Passionate summary of the inhuman treatment of the Jewish people in Europe, of the exodus in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries to Palestine, and of the triumphant founding of the new Israel." – The New York Times

Exodus telling the story of Israel‘s founding

A book that provides a wonderful story about the founding of modern Israel if in a vey idealized form. I enjoyed it as a young boy and now. It is interesting that current politics in Israel are violating the constitution and idealistic treatment Uris highlighted in the novel towards their Arab citizenry.

How the countries of the Arabian peninsula insist on refusing to find a way to peace following the United Nations international community granting of Israel the right to exist. An expose compelling all countries to join in the peace process and put down the guns.
