Breathtakingly sharp analysis of Israel past and present.,

This review is from: My Promised Land: the triumph and tragedy of Israel (Kindle Edition)
Shavit's narrative is unlike any other account of Israel that I have read: deeply personal, part poetic, part elegiac, part polemic. Parts of the analysis may be flawed but the writing is majestic and one cannot doubt the integrity of the endeavour nor the intent to write a balanced account of the Zionist quest to settle the land.
