Let’s face it: a chasm separates the experience of reading an article on a screen or in a newspaper, and giving yourself over to a good book. No matter how well-written an article may be, when you read it online or in newspaper, myriad distractions jostle for attention and jangle your nerves. Settle in to read the same piece in a book and the experience is transformed!
In this engagingly reflective and deeply passionate collection, Dvir Abramovich takes the reader on a fascinating pilgrimage through the landscapes of the ever-changing Jewish world, an extraordinary tour that demonstrates the full range of his observational powers.
Bristling with the author’s signature eloquence and erudition, this ambitious volume brings together a series of trenchant essays that tackle the momentous political and cultural shifts that have marked the Jewish world in the twenty-first century.
With candour and insight, Abramovich explores an expanse of topics such as the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, antisemitism, Holocaust trivialisation, the rise of neo-Nazism, education, the nature of extremism, and the role of memory, training his eye on the issues that illuminate the times we live in, and holding nothing back.
