On the 4th of November 1995 Israeli Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin was assassinated by a young student, Yigal Amir, an act which abruptly changed the course of Israeli politics. This text provides an account of the crime and the factors which led inexorably to its execution. More than a tale of an assassination, the book aims to present a powerful indictment of a society's failure to examine itself honestly and to bring its own worst enemies to justice. In a series of revelations, the book ranges beyond Israel to expose the extent of American support - financial and ideological - for the movement that produced Rabin's killer.
