Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

"A deeply important book for anyone who cares about Israel."—President Bill Clinton

"A probing, courageous, and timely book... Beinart offers a forceful exposition of American apprehensions about Israel's path.... Marks a significant evolution in the debate over Israel."—Jacob Heilbrunn, The Atlantic

In Israel, the deepening occupation of the West Bank is putting Israeli democracy at risk. And in the United States, the refusal of major Jewish organizations to defend democracy in the Jewish state is alienating many young liberal Jews from Zionism itself. In The Crisis of Zionism, Peter Beinart lays out in chilling detail the looming danger to Israeli democracy and the American Jewish establishments refusal to confront it. And he renders a fascinating, groundbreaking portrait of the two leaders at the center of the crisis: Barack Obama and Benjamin Netanyahu. Beinart offers provocative proposals for how the relationship between American Jews and Israel must change, and an eloquent and moving appeal for American Jews to defend the dream of a democratic Jewish state before it is too late.
