"The evolution of Israel into an aggressively nationalistic, paramilitary and essentially undemocratic nation has, in Maxim Ghilan's opinion, destroyed any immediate hopes of lasting peace. Here, in a powerful, thought-provoking book, he charts the events leading up to the birth of the state in 1948, discuss its its political and social development and analyses what constitutes 'Jewish Identity'. No one can solve the current deadlock overnight (and the latest war illustrates how pertinent it is to the rest of the world). Nevertheless, in his view, unless the international Jewish question can be separated from the Middle East, there was little hope for a workable solution." -- from the rear panel blurb.
