The definitive one-volume history of Israel by its most distinguished historian

From its Zionist beginnings at the end of the nineteenth century through the past sixty, tumultuous years, the state of Israel has been, as van Creveld argues, “the greatest success story in the entire twentieth century.” In this crisp volume, he skillfully relates the improbable story of a nationless people who, given a hot and arid patch of land and coping with every imaginable obstacle, founded a country that is now the envy of surrounding states. While most studies on Israel focus on the political, this encompassing history weaves together the nation’s economic, social, cultural and religious narratives while also offering diplomatic solutions to help Israel achieve peace. Without question, this is the best one-volume history of Israel and its people.

"While deeply erudite on the myriad factors that have shaped the history of Israel, 'The Land of Blood and Honey' also offers a lively examination of the Israeli people themselves. The author deftly considers their rich social, cultural, and religious traditions, as well as the dynamic tensions between the traditional and modern, Orthodox and secular, and even between the sexes" --Cover, p. 2.… (more)
