This informal history by a former long-time editor of The Jerusalem Post represents the only book to date that depicts the relationship between the press and the political system in Israel. This is an invaluable insider's report of Israel's only English-language daily newspaper and its role in society and in political developments from the 1930s to the present. Erwin Frenkel's story is a chronological account of the newspaper from the days of Palestine under the British mandate system, through independence, to the 1990s. It shows how the newspaper has functioned both in support of and in opposition to various governments and political parties.

MEDIA 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
