The Life of a Leader

Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon’s youngest son, Gilad Sharon, combed through his father’s vast archives to offer an intimate look at this controversial figure in Middle Eastern politics. From 2001 until his stroke in 2006, Ariel Sharon walked a fine line between waging war on Israel’s enemies and accommodating its allies, all while grappling with suicide bombings, the Iraq War, and Iran’s nuclear program. Gilad Sharon gives moderator Wendy Ballinger, Treasurer of the Ford Hall Forum Board, a rare glimpse into his father’s private discussions with major heads of state, as well as an illuminating analysis of this global leader’s unique views.

Gilad Sharon will be signing and selling copies of his book, “Sharon: The Life of a Leader,” at the end of the event.

Thursday, October 27, 6:30 p.m. to 8:00 p.m.
