The book relates individual episodes from the saga of Israel instead of narrating a formal, conventional history up to the present day. Each section deals with a different aspect of this journey through the decades. The subjects do not cover old ground and are intentionally revelatory as they relate the history of Israel in a vivid, engaging way.
The saga of Israel is fascinating, unique, and controversial. Yet the whole is constructed from individual episodes. This book concentrates on relating such episodes rather than narrating a formal, conventional history up until the present day. Each section deals with a different aspect of this journey through the decades. The chapters are based on the author’s own articles, published over the last fifty years in many outlets, from The New York Times and The Jerusalem Post to The Guardian. Each section and essay is linked to the next by an explanatory introduction. Most subjects are often unconventional and unusual. They do not cover old ground and are often intentionally revelatory as they relate the history of Israel in a vivid, engaging way.
