Richly illustrated with over 200 colour photographs and a text exploring the archaeology, history and social life of Israel, this book reflects the tremendous range of sights and issues crammed into this tiny strip of land along the coast of the eastern Mediterranean: beaches and desert; antiquity and modernity; Judaism, Islam and Christianity; mosques, synagogues and churches; peace and conflict. Written for the traveller as well as the armchair tourist, the book includes practical information and routes to walk or drive.
