Editorial Reviews

?This elegantly written, thoughtful book manages to be history, philosophy, and personal document at the same time. As a clear-eyed observer (he worked for the Jerusalem Post for almost 30 years and served as its editor for 13 of them), Erwin Frenkel gives us an informal account of this English-language newspaper from its founding in 1932 to the early 1990s, against a background of the transformation of Zionism and Israel during these years and the changing relationship between press, politics, and public opinion ub a free society. This is a touching memoir by an acute unassuming, highly intelligent man.?-Congress Monthly
