Forty Years in the Wilderness: Inside Israel's West Bank Settlements
Israeli settlements are one of the most contentious issues in the Middle East. President Obama demands a halt to their construction, Palestinians want them gone, but the Israeli government continues to build.
The authors of this book travel from settlement to settlement talking to the original pioneers, the gun-toting zealots, and those who simply came for cheap housing. They speak to native born Israelis, immigrants from America and Ethiopia, politicians, ultra-secular nationalists, ultra-orthodox extremists and others to discover who the settlers really are - and what they think their future holds.
