IN THE LAND OF ISRAEL

Author: Amos Oz

Notebook in hand, Oz travelled throughout Israel and the West Bank in the early 1980s to talk with workers, soldiers, religious zealots, aging pioneers, new immigrants, desperate Arabs, young fanatics, dreamers and visionaries.  He asked them questions about where Israel had come from, what the present held, and where it was headed.  What he heard is memorably set down here in those distinctive voices, alongside his keen descriptions, observations and reflections.  He tells the truth as he sees it and as others see it, with courage and brutal frankness. 

The author's journey has, deservedly, become a classic insider's view of a land whose complex past and often trouble present make for an uncertain future.

“An exemplary instance of a writer using his craft to come to grips with what is happening politically and to illuminate certain aspects of Israeli society that have generally been concealed by polemical formulas.” —The New York Times

“Oz’s vignettes . . . wondrously re-create whole worlds with an economy of words.” —Philadelphia Inquirer
