Israeli Democracy: What Threatens it and How to Save it, with Author Gershom Gorenberg

jstreetEmily Greenspan ’16 has a message for you:

J Street U invites you to think about the future of Israeli Democracy, and admire this awesome beard.

Gershom Gorenberg is the author of The Unmaking of Israel, 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.”

Gorenberg’s 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.”

He has written for the New York Times Magazine, Haaretz and Foreign Policy Magazine. He lives in Jerusalem.
