Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 4-8-A current and representative overview of the country's culture, history, geography, government, and economy. Readers are provided with a comprehensive look at why the state evolved the way it has, and what life in modern Israel is like. Brief mention is made of ongoing violence between Israelis and Palestinians and the thwarted efforts to forge a lasting peace. The text flows easily and the information is presented in a clear and unbiased format. There is a "touristy" flavor to the book as well, and such things as currency exchange, basic Hebrew and Arabic vocabulary, and vivid descriptions of regions to visit are included. Addresses for the Embassy in Washington, DC, and for the Israel Tourism Information Center in New York are appended along with relevant Web sites. The full-color photographs are compelling. One picture shows a young Palestinian boy, dressed in Western garb, riding a scooter past an Israeli tank. This book stands equally well among other titles, such as those in the "Cultures of the World" (Marshall Cavendish) or "Modern World Nations" series (Chelsea), and it provides a sound introduction to the study of Israel and to understanding the current conflict in the Middle East.-Robyn Walker, Elgin Court Public School, St. Thomas, Ontario, Canada Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information.
