From The second generation of Zionist Israelis, the first generation to be educated and socialized within the Jewish community in Palestine, included the Jews born in Palestine toward the end of World War I through the 1920s and 1930s, as well as immigrants who arrived in Palestine as youngsters and were assimilated into the same milieu.The Sabra: The Creation ... Textbook Their social institutions included the agriculture communes and settlements, schools, pioneering youth movements, such premilitary corps as the Hagam and the Gadna, the Palmach and its brigades in the War of Independence, and the first elite units of the Israel Defense Force. First published in Hebrew in 1997, this book is a sociohistorical portrait of the Israeli elite at its origins. It does not deal with the chronology of historical events and does not focus on organizations, institutions, and ideologies. Rather, it seeks to present a sociological overview in an effort to grasp the spirit of the time in which Zionist idealism was at its peak. Meticulously researched, this could well become the standard work on the subject. George CohenCopyright © American Library Association.

The translation by Haim Watzman is beyond praise." -- Sunday Times of London"[A] portrait of the elite cohort which dominated Israeli society in its formative years, this . . . book carries almost total conviction." -- Times Literary Supplement
