Facing unprecedented internal and external pressures, Israel is at a moment of existential crisis. My Promised Land: The Triumph and Tragedy of Israel tells the story of Israel as it has never been told before, and asks difficult but important questions: Why and how did Israel come to be? Can Israel survive? Ari Shavit’s unique writing, which challenges the dogmas of both the right and left, has made him one of the leading political thinkers of the Jewish state.
