The Book of David

DAVID HOROWITZ: Dean of United Nations Press Corps and Founder: United Israel World Union


Book of DavidFor 10 years, author Ralph Buntyn spent many hours with renowned United Nations correspondent and United Israel founder David Horowitz. They engaged in lengthy discussions about his foundational views drawn from his experience and unique vantage point in the two world bodies. The Book of David is based on his personal notes, extensive archival records and reflections from these conversations.

This book documents the life and legacy of David Horowitz and stands as a permanent accounting of the unfolding events in his life and his role in the affairs of the United Nations, the State of Israel, and United Israel World Union during the latter half of the twentieth century.

In Horowitz’s autobiography Thirty-three Candles published in 1956, he wrote: “Thirty-three Candles undoubtedly calls for a sequel because much has occurred on the world scene since 1944, most of it confirming its major thesis. I feel I shall have to bow to this demand.” The Book of David is dedicated to fulfilling Horowitz’s request for an historical accounting of the period that followed.
