David Ben-Gurion: A Creative Leader
Rosemarin, Shoshana
Gifted Education International, v30 n2 p168-176 May 2014
David Ben-Gurion (1886-1973), the first Prime Minister of Israel, is included in Pasternak's (2001) list of the nine most memorable leaders of the twentieth century. All of them are remembered for the reforms they initiated. Roosevelt (USA), Stalin (Russia), Castro (Cuba), and Thatcher (England) focused on social-economical changes, whereas Gandhi (India), Abdullah (Jordan), Ben-Gurion, Begin and Rabin (Israel), Nasser (Egypt), and DeGaulle (France) achieved political changes. Moreover, Ben-Gurion was assigned two titles: "one of the greatest politicians" as well as "one of the greatest Jewish leaders" (Sheffer, 1997: 583).
