J812bRfo_400x400Mr Gorenberg is the author of The Unmaking of Israel (Harper Collins 2011), a provocative examination of Israeli history that describes the crisis of Israeli democracy and lays out a vision for the country’s future. “Until I read The Unmaking of Israel,” says novelist Michael Chabon, “I didn’t think it could be possible to feel more despairing, and then more terribly hopeful, about Israel.” His previous book is The Accidental Empire: Israel and the Birth of the Settlements, 1967-1977. The New York Times called it, “Remarkably insightful … A groundbreaking revision that deserves to reframe the entire debate.” Gershom Gorenberg is a senior correspondent for The American Prospect and a columnist for Haaretz. He has written for The Atlantic Monthly, The New York Times Magazine, The New York Review of Books, and Foreign Policy. He lives in Jerusalem
