Hardly a day passes when Israel is not in the news. Virtually all the press coverage, however, is about the conflict between Israel and her neighbors. There is so much more to Israel that is positive and should be better known. This book provides essential facts about not only the political events in the news, but also the positive contributions Israel is making in the arts and sciences. It describes some of the remarkable sites and people that make the country unique. This is not a recitation of facts and figures, but a mosaic of the most important aspects of Israel's past and present. The book will entertain those interested in some of the fascinating trivia about Israel and inform those doing more serious research about the economy, government, and culture of the Jewish State.

Bard (American-Israeli Cooperative Enterprise) and Schwartz (a US government analyst) admit to their own pro-Zionist ideologies, and they include many fun facts, such as Israel having the highest per capita percentage of home computers (70 percent) and the world's highest per capita number of doctors and engineers. But they do not ignore or whitewash difficulties and controversies, such as investigations into Israel's role in the Sabra and Shatila massacres. * CHOICE *
