WINNER OF THE NATAN BOOK AWARD


WINNER OF THE 2013 NATIONAL JEWISH BOOK AWARD

AN AUTHORITATIVE AND DEEPLY PERSONAL NARRATIVE HISTORY OF THE STATE OF ISRAEL

BY ONE OF THE MOST INFLUENTIAL JOURNALISTS WRITING ABOUT THE MIDDLE EAST TODAY

“A beautiful, mesmerizing, morally serious, and vexing book. I’ve been waiting most of my adult life for an Israeli to plumb the deepest mysteries of his country’s existence and share his discoveries, and Ari Shavit does so brilliantly.”

—Jeffrey Goldberg, national correspondent, The Atlantic
