The Writings and Words of Menachem Begin

In a book review of a volume of Moshe Sharett, we found this observation:

The fact that the writings and sayings of other Israeli prime ministers - including David Ben-Gurion, the most important and influential of all - have not been published so extensively creates a certain feeling of disproportion. Levi Eshkol, Golda Meir and even Menachem Begin - all prime ministers of considerable importance - have not had even a fraction of their written and spoken words issued in print.

At present, the State Archives are editing a volume of Menachem Begin's words in print and speech with professor Aryeh Naor in charge.
