This book will generate praise or rebuke, depending upon the listener’s opinions about Israel, the Palestinians, the Israeli government, and Zionism. Beinart’s controversial ideas benefit from narrator Lloyd James’s steady and level cadence, which allows the material to ignite or affirm the listener. Audiobook listeners recognize the nuances of words, and this book highlights them. To some, the issue in Israel is the “occupation” of the West Bank; to others, it is the Palestinians who occupy the land and have created an “Intifada” without any right to do so. To Americans, particularly Zionists, the issues are equally polarizing. Regardless, Beinart’s analysis evokes emotions and will lead to intense debates. James senses this chasm, and his performance demonstrates how every inflection and nuance may be perceived differently, depending upon the listener’s views.
