Goliath: Life and Loathing in Greater Israel

Friday, 22 November 2013 | A Public Affair

How is society changing in Israel-Palestine under the rule of authoritarian politics?

On Friday, November 22nd, our host Esty Dinur was joined by author and journalist Max Blumenthal to discuss his latest book,“Goliath: Life and Loathing in Great Israel”.

“Through his far-ranging travels, Blumenthal illuminates the present by uncovering the ghosts of the past—the histories of Palestinian neighborhoods and villages now gone and forgotten; how that history has set the stage for the current crisis of Israeli society; and how the Holocaust has been turned into justification for occupation. A brave and unflinching account of the real facts on the ground, Goliath is an unprecedented and compelling work of journalism.”- NationBooks
