"Lipstadt's book, Golda Meir: Israel's Matriarch, is a holistic portrait. It neither neglects nor erases Meir's shortcomings, but finds in them the same worldview that fostered her many successes."--PJ Grisar, The Forward

"Lipstadt succeeds in painting a visceral portrait of Golda Meir as a gifted orator and blunt negotiator, a pragmatic, single-minded and often inflexible leader who was wholeheartedly devoted to the Zionist mission."--Amy Spiro, Times of Israel

"Comprehensive. . . . Always thoughtful. . . . A nuanced account of a leader whose influence endures in the Middle East."--Kirkus Reviews

"Deborah Lipstadt offers a comprehensive and fresh portrait of the former Israeli prime minister. Through her attention to gender, Lipstadt provides novel insights into the life of this iconic woman!"--Rabbi David Ellenson, author of Jewish Meaning in a World of Choice: Studies in Tradition and Modernity
