Publisher's Summary

This program includes an introduction read by the author.

World-renowned lawyer Alan Dershowitz recounts stories from his many years of defending the state of Israel.

Alan Dershowitz has spent years advocating for his "most challenging client" - the state of Israel - both publicly and in private meetings with high-level international figures, including every US president and Israeli leader of the past 40 years. Replete with personal insights and unreported details, Defending Israel offers a comprehensive history of modern Israel from the perspective of one of the country's most important supporters. Listeners are given a rare front-row seat to the high-profile controversies and debates that Dershowitz was involved in over the years, even as the political tides shifted and the liberal community became increasingly critical of Israeli policies.

Beyond documenting America's changing attitude toward the country, Defending Israel serves as an updated defense of the Jewish homeland on numerous points - though it also includes Dershowitz's criticisms of Israeli decisions and policies that he believes to be unwise. At a time when Jewish Americans as a whole are increasingly uncertain as to who supports Israel and who doesn't, there is no better audiobook to turn to for answers - and a pragmatic look toward the future.

Extremely interesting story of an ultra-intelligent defender of Israel. He is sometimes critical, but always consistent. I wish he had narrated the whole thing himself though.

Needed Education

This book should be read and discussed on every college campus. Book clubs should read and discuss. People do not know Israel and that needs to change. Written in an easy to understand style. Like a conversation with a smart friend.
