Full of history, politics, and research, this book will explain to readers what Israel is all about. From pre-World War I to modern day, Glick explains what international laws have been passed and ignored through the ages. Other countries' political makeups are also detailed. Readers will learn about Egypt, Syria, Iran, and other places. Leaders and terrorists are detailed. Media broadcasts and educational propaganda in other cultures are expounded upon in translations / quotes. Broken up into three sections with an extremely useful table-of-contents, this makes a great reference book. There are terror events recorded and hateful quotes inserted. This is not a book for the faint-of-heart but it does give an honest account of the news surrounding Israel. Glick also gives chapters where she discusses what she predicts for the future in Israel.
