external pressures, Israel today is at a moment of existential crisis Ari Shavit draws on interviews, historical documents, private diaries, and letters, as well as his own familys story, illuminating the pivotal moments of the Zionist century to tell a riveting narrative that is larger than the sum of its parts both personal and national, both deeply human and of profound historical dimension We

immigrant orphans of Europes Holocaust, who took on menial work and focused on raising their children to become the leaders of the new state the pragmatic engineer who was instrumental in developing
