“A relevant and studious book that should interest readers of Jewish history or anyone interested in Israel’s place in today’s world.
“His succinct, thoroughly researched, insightful arguments . . . are sure to spark controversy.”
Biale’s work demonstrates the best of contemporary Jewish scholarship. Historically informed and critically based, it is a brave work attacking a metahistory of the Jewish people and unmasking propagandists and those who would mystify rather than write truth.”
