Israel: A Concise History of a Nation Reborn, by Daniel Gordis
This refresher course on Israel’s short yet complex history, written by an author and columnist for the Jerusalem Post and Bloomberg View, is a good book to read before passing it on to your friends and family.
From his home base in Jerusalem, Daniel Gordis delves into more than just what’s written in the history books, writing about Israel’s political, social and economic developments and other cultural achievements, while asking questions like: “Why does such a small country speak to so many global concerns?” and ‘Why does Israel make the decisions it does?” A reminder of the facts and triumphs we all need to brush up on now and again.
