Shavit’s provocative book avoids the clichés typical of some works about the Middle East, and the audio version benefits from Paul Boehmer’s superb presentation. His personal and compelling portrait of contemporary Israel provides insights that should make even the most polarized listeners think more deeply about the nation, Zionism, and the Palestinian conflict. Boehmer adopts an Israeli accent that lends credibility to the material. The audio production also succeeds because Boehmer authentically presents the breadth of the material, which includes interviews, historic documents, and personal accounts of life in the Promised Land.
