Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Invention of the Land of Israel: From Holy Land to Homeland (Hardcover)
This is an extremely well researched and elegantly written book. The story with supporting theories and arguments is rolled out with with robust vigour and delightful threads of humour and irony which make the reading delightful." The Invention Of The Land Of Israel" is a very valuable contribution to this field of enquiry. The references to the vast literature that he has mastered in the putting together of this book makes me want to explore these sources myself and acquire something of the expertise that the author shows.
I am also reading "The Invention of the Jewish People" which is also just wonderful. Waiting in the wings I have also "On THe Nation and the 'Jewish People'" to look forward to.
