"Mr. Halkin's book presents [Jabotinsky] in all his hardheaded but humane complexity."-Douglas J. Feith, Wall Street Journal
"Concise and highly readable."-Daniel Tauber, Jerusalem Post
"A revelatory exploration of Vladimir Jabotinsky."-Colin Shindler, Jewish Chronicle
"Halkin's exquisite translation strikingly reveals the personal side of a man so often vilified in the press for his uncompromising political stands. In a similar way, Halkin's literary criticism offers unparalleled insights into little known aspects of Jabotinsky's career, and his discussion of the Jabotinsky's novel, The Five . . . is probably the best analysis of the novel to date."-Louis Gordon,Times of Israel
"The author uses Jabotinsky's literary works to analyze his character. At the outset, Halkin describes for the reader the problems of Eastern European Jewry, while creating a link to Jabotinsky and events that influenced and shaped his views. In so doing, he creates a broad perspective on Jabotinsky's character and the events in his life. The book is unique in that Halkin enables readers to understand the link between Jabotinsky's literary writings, his political ideas, and his lifestyle."-Israel Journal of Foreign Affairs
"This is a revelatory exploration of Vladimir Jabotinsky, 'father of the Israeli right.' . . . Halkin has done his research well . . . his well-crafted and fascinating book has added a new dimension to the serious study of Jabotinsky as a pivotal figure in Zionism."-Colin Shindler, Jewish Chronicle
