Overview

This collection of more than 300 cartoons created over the last twenty-three years, including a dozen up-to-the-moment ones, takes an often witty, always heartfelt, and sometimes biting look at life in Israel. The book shows the flow of Israeli history as it unfolds "hot off the press." Each of the cartoons is published here without the luxury of hindsight - it is Israeli history as the Israelis have lived it. The book is introduced by Israeli journalist and writer Yossi Klein Halevi. Ya'akov Kirschen is the American-born Israeli political cartoonist whose Jerusalem-based Dry Bones comic strip runs in The Jerusalem Report and thirty-five North American newspapers. In addition to his weekly drawing of Dry Bones, he has written three other books. For its many fans around the globe, Dry Bones provides a window into what Israelis think, feel, and experience, and the strip is often quoted and reprinted in the world press.
