Based on rare archival materials, including off-the-record interviews, home videos, family photos and letters, Rabin in His Own Words offers a candid and intimate portrait of the late Prime Minister. Chiefly narrated by Rabin himself, we are taken on a journey from his childhood, through his days as a farm worker, to a career in the army and, later on, as a diplomat and politician. This is a nuanced and detailed study of an influential statesman, whose life – and death – have come to define a nation.
