Riassunto: A fascinating story of one man's impact on history (Sir Martin Gilbert, historian; Honorary Fellow of Merton College, University of Oxford). Vladimir Jabotinsky and Sioma Jacobi exchanged more than five hundred letters between 1920 and 1939. Yet Jabotinsky s right-hand man, who ran the London Revisionist bureau from 1934 until his premature death at the age of forty-two, and who nearly single-handedly managed illegal immigration to Palestine, is virtually unknown. This book resurrects the legacy of a remarkable man and awards Solomon Sioma Jacobi his rightful place in Zionist history.
L'autore: Rodney Benjamin (PhD, University of Melbourne) is an experienced and widely published professional historian, and is the son-in-law of Sioma Jacobi. Rodney is the sole author of four scholarly historical books, coedited and has contributed chapters to several other books, and is a frequent author of journal articles. In 1999 he was awarded the Order of Australia Medal by the Australian government for his services to the Jewish community (to the Jewish Welfare Society and to the Friends of the Hebrew University), and also for service to the insurance industry as chairman of a number of insurance professional groups and as an adviser to state governments. He was chief executive officer of a major firm of insurance brokers when ill health forced his retirement at which point he commenced an academic career. Rodney was born in Melbourne, Australia, where he lives with his wife Carmel, their children, and their children. David Cebon, like his grandfather Sioma Jacobi, is an engineer. He is a professor of mechanical engineering in the Cambridge University Engineering Department and a Fellow of the Royal Academy of Engineering. David runs an active research group concerned with issues in transportation and has published several engineering books and many papers in technical journals. He is also Managing Director of Granta Design Ltd., a university spin-out company that specializes in information technology solutions for engineering materials. David lives in Cambridge, UK, with his wife Ericka and three school-aged children, Noa, Zak, and Leo.
