5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful read, 8 Nov. 2013
Excellent and well researched read on what I consider to be the most important issue in world affairs today. This book really confronts the systemic discrimination that is inflicted on the Palestinians by Netanyahu and his cronies.

It is great to see books like this enter the public domain, however I find it a pity that only Jewish writers can contribute to the topic as everyone else is branded as anti-Semitic if they dare criticise apartheid Israel.

For anyone that is new to this topic and is looking to read more on this subject, may I suggest the writings of Norman Finklestein, who has written some excellent books.

Shlomo Sand the Israeli professor has also written an excellent book called 'The Invention of the Jewish People'.

Both writers have books right here on Amazon.

The stuffing in this pillow is too light, baby tends to sink inside it, I am going to replace it for a better brand

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Nice product and just what I needed, the base is a little light though, when lamp is fully extended it doesn't take a lot to knock the lamp over, a little heavier or maybe a wider base would help sort this problem, but other than that it is a great lamp.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Read, 11 Sept. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a great book especially for us that don't have a background in economics. It explains the real causes of the current crisis and what steps we need to take to put an end to this crisis. It's a pity some of the Finance Ministers around Europe don't read this and apply the simple economics to end this crisis now. I would say the book is also an excellent counter argument against right wing economics.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent read so far (70 pages in), 10 Sept. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I have just received my copy and have read about 70 pages so far.
It is really well researched and very well written. I am thoroughly enjoying it.
I thought a small review might help counter some of the reviews on here by people who have not even bought or read the book. There are a lot of people (mostly folk that used to support a team called Rangers) writing scurrilous reviews that just don't back up my experience of the book so far.
I would recommend all fair minded people who have an interest in the scandal to buy the book.
