The word itself can mean "arguing with God," and talking about Israel can start endless arguments about politics, history, morality, and prejudice. Unsettled, Marc Aronson's most deeply personal book to date, explores the history of Israel, from the beginning of the Zionist movement to the birth of Israel as a state in 1948 to the intense confâ??licts over Israel, the Palestinians, and the Jewish settlements of today. Along the way Aronson intersperses stories from his own family's long experiences in Israel while asking and answering such questions as: Can a religious state also be a democratic one? Is Israel the victim or the aggressor? Do modern states have moral obligations? And perhaps the most troubling question of all: What kind of Israel should exist? Once again, Aronson has created history for young adults that is exciting, probing, clear, and most of all, fearless.
