Balanced, in-depth, lyrical account of Israel's history and current predicament. Each chapter presents a different face of Israel's modern past and present, and not necessarily the ones you would expect. Really enjoyed. ( )

This was a disturbing and tiring book, in some ways, yet also encouraging. I finished it some time ago, but never got around to writing a review because it left me feeling so sad, and in a way just a bit hopeless. The levels of apathy, of resignation to what is rather than hope for what could be, and the histories of events I'd read from another point of view about twenty years ago, now seen very differently. All very sad, yet I also see the need to read and attempt to help build on the work of authors like Amos Oz, and to read him in the original modern Hebrew, to try harder to understand the full dynamics of what is pulling on the modern State of Israel from both within and without, and to see how that applies to (and to some extent comes from) our Jewish communities, my chosen community, the people of Israel in the diaspora.
I was struck by the near uprising of the Mizrachim and Sfardim, and my experience talking with a Sfardic friend in 1988, and how we have both changed over those years, sadly.
I remain hopeful, because I must.

An outstanding collection of essays and reflections that start with Shavit's great-grandfather arriving in 1897 and end with the aftermath of the 2013 elections.

Tremendously readable and unblinking look at the triumphs and disasters of Zionism's first century. Shavit is as sharp on the failures of the Left as he is on the excesses of the Right. Hard to imagine this changing anyone's mind, but it's bloody good all the same. ( )

What I wanted was what I got -- a well balanced booked that explained the Israeli/Palestinian conflict from the beginning to its current sorry state of affairs. Shavit, a journalist who has lived his whole life in Israel and been active in the peace movement, shares his perceptions along with the those of many people who have been influential in the development of the country. He knows most of the major players on the right and left and lets them speak for themselves in interviews. I, for one, didn't know much about the Zionist political movement which brought secular Jews to Isreal as early as the late 1800's with the goal of setting up a socialist, agrarian community. Now I want to know more. One book on my list is A Peace to End All Peace, which explores the roles played by England, France, Germany and Turkey (then the Ottoman Empire) in the Middle East prior to WWI and beyond. ( )
