Overview

Israel is a country whose turbulent history stands alongside its rich cultural heritage and outstanding natural beauty.  It is the spiritual centre of three world religions – Judaism, Christianity and Islam - and popular pilgrim sites are given due prominence in the Bradt guide.  Archaeological remains are found throughout the country and these, along with areas of natural beauty and geographical interest are well covered.  The guide also features detailed information on the Dead Sea region and Eilat, popular holiday locations hosting scuba diving and a range of other watersports.  Plenty of practical details on culture, language, local tours, flights and visas make the Bradt guide a comprehensive and up-to-date choice for visitors to this popular tourism core of the Middle East.

This report assesses the role that foreign direct investment has come to play in Israel's economy and the policy measures susceptible of enhancing this role in the future.

Read an Excerpt

Nazareth

Nazareth - Israel’s largest Arab city - rests atop, between and around five round hills that form the end of the Galilee Mountains presiding over the Jezreel Valley below. Outside the country, it is probably most well known as being the childhood home of Jesus and a site for pilgrims over the last two thousand years. Religious and historic sites centre around the Old City in the heart of Nazareth, where preconceived images of quaint cobbled stone alleys and bustling markets are fully realised. Outside the Old City however, Nazareth is a hectic, modern and vibrant Arab city where the aromas of strong coffee, spices and sweets drift along the streets, where women sport traditional Jalabeye coats, and where the loud chatter and the sounds of car horns dull only marginally at prayer times. With a population of 60,000 – 60% of whom are Muslim – there is an undeniable and refreshing feel of unity, where two major religions are co-existing in relative success. Incomparably to many other Arab Israelis and certainly Palestinians living in the West Bank, the people of Nazareth are content with their situation, where Arab life and culture most certainly prevail. Modest dress is highly recommended - particularly for women - both in the Old City and outside.
