This review is from: The Invention of the Land of Israel: From Holy Land to Homeland (Hardcover)
This is a fascinating and eye-opening work. For non-Jews, access to recent Jewish history tends to be limited to books on the Holocaust or Jewish persecution in Europe and it's refreshing to discover so much more about Jewish history and Judaism. I'm not that interested in the current political dimension so I'm unable to comment about any bias in professor Sand's book and having read a few negative comments, I feel it is a pity that many of the sources cited by Professor Sand are written in Hebrew and not generally availble in the West. That said, the book appears to be fairly objective in it's treament of Jewish history and well worth a read, whatever your political background or inclination.
