A dozen essays document the evolution of national myths in Israel as the heroic figures and events of independence and survival transmute into blind fanaticism, great-power manipulation, and traditional colonialism and genocide. Without passing any judgement on the changes, they delve into the meaning and purposes of the old myths and of the new ones growing to replace them, emphasizing the context of the maturing of Israeli society rather than its international relations.
