Weizmann was born in 1874 in Motol, Russia.

This second volume of the author's biography of Chaim Weizmann concentrates on the years from 1914 to 1922, when Weizmann capitalized on his scientific achievements to become an "insider" in his relations with prominent British politicians.
More statesman than politician, Weizmann was often autocratic, elitist, condescending in his views of Palestinian Arabs, overly sensitive to slights and dismissive of his rivals.
He may not always have convinced his British interlocutors to become Zionists, but he usually persuaded them to become "pro-Weizmannites." The establishment of the British mandate for Palestine, incorporating the Balfour Declaration, is the end point of this volume.
