Born David Gruen, he adopted the ancient Hebrew name Ben-Gurion in 1906 at age 20 when he immigrated to Palestine. He devoted his life to establishing a Jewish nation, and encouraged the return of Jewish people from throughout the world. After serving again as Prime Minister from 1955-1963, Ben-Gurion devoted himself to writing. He published Israel: The Years of Challenge (1963) and The Jews in Their Land (1966). Slightly creased at upper right blank margin. Framed in the Gallery of History style: 19x30¼.
