How To Understand Israel in 60 Days or Less
Sarah Glidden is a progressive Jewish American twenty-something who is both vocal and critical of Israeli politics in the Holy Land. When a debate with her mother prods her to sign up for a Birthright Israel tour, she expects to find objective facts to support her strong opinions. With straightforward sincerity, lovingly observed anecdotes, and a generous dose of self-deprecating humor, Glidden's perspective is distinctive yet accessible. Over the course of this touching memoir, Glidden comes to terms with the idea that there are no easy answers to the world's problems, and that is okay.
