ISRAEL TODAY: Land of Many Nations by Ruth Gruber

ISRAEL TODAY: Land of Many Nations

Email this review


Primarily a tourist's guide to Israel, this book gives enough of Israel's political, cultural and economic history to provide a background for the potential visitor. The major cities are described as are the kibbutzim, frontier villages and the many races that make up modern Israel. An appendix gives up-to-date information on transportation, hotels, shops, restaurants and currency. Optimistic, dramatic and emotional in its approach, Israel Today is definitely written from one viewpoint--an admiring one well suited to the sympathetic reader and would-be tourist who wants the most recent book on Israel.
