Summary

One ofNewsweek's Ten Best Books of the Year In this penetrating and provocative look at the state of contemporary Israel, acclaimed Israeli historian and journalist Gershom Gorenberg reveals how the nation's policies are undermining its democracy and existence as a Jewish state, and explains what must be done to bring it back from the brink. Refuting shrill defenses of Israel and equally strident attacks, Gorenberg shows that the Jewish state is, in fact, unique among countries born in the postcolonial era: it began as a parliamentary democracy and has remained one. Yet shortsighted policies, unintended consequences, and its refusal to heed warnings now threaten its many accomplishments. Based on groundbreaking historical research and a quarter century of experience reporting in the region,The Unmaking of Israelis a brilliant, deeply personal critique by a progressive Israeli, and a plea for realizing the nation's potential.
