A very readable and passionate essay on how to resolve the Palestinian-Israeli situation. The book has an index, chapter notes, and a lengthy bibliography. It would have benefited from some simple maps showing the pre-1947 and post-1967 borders; and major place names mentioned in the text.

"For Israel to establish itself again as a liberal democracy, it must make three changes. First, it must end the settlement enterprise, end the occupation, and find a peaceful way to partition the land between the Jordan [River] and the Mediterranean. Second, it must divorce state and synagogue - freeing the state from clericalism, and religion from the state. Third and most basically, it must graduate from being an ethnic movement to being a democratic state in which all citizens enjoy equality." (p. 222)
