Israel at Sixty, based on the authors’ extensive interviews with Israelis and others throughout the world who have participated in the many events encompassing the Jewish State’s sixty years of nationhood, and representing a broad spectrum of views,_ gives readers a balanced, comprehensive understanding of this provocative and constantly amazing nation._ Through the medium of oral history, combined with extensive bridging material providing background and factual data, the book gives life to the personalities of a cross-section of its citizens from many walks of life._ The authors_recreate historic events and actions of Israel’s founding visionaries who fulfilled their peoples’ centuries-old dream of return from exile – an accomplishment for which the nation’s inhabitants would endure constant tension and the ravages of six wars with Israel’s Arab neighbors, as well as international opprobrium._ The authors also explore issues currently confronting Israel, which, having achieved peace with adversaries Egypt and Jordan, and having embarked on fulfilling obligations of the “Road Map,” has grown in strength and international stature, but has yet to resolve the Palestinian refugee situation, as well as to conclude permanent peace with the many still-adversarial nations of the Arab world.
