From controversial academic and best-selling author Sholomo Sand comes his most recent book. Sand attempts to deconstruct a centuries old narrative that continue to inspire and enflame inhabitants of the Holy Land. He also details the flawed logic and age-old prejudices that threaten to suffocate the region.
He argues the invention of the modern concept of the 'Land of Israel' was in the nineteenth and not only facilitated the colonization of the Middle East and the establishment of the State of Israel, but it is also what is threatening Israel's existence today.
With his hard critical analysis and blunt honesty, Sand questions what is a homland and what is the essence of a promised land?
