This book recounts the author's meetings with some of Israel's political and intellectual leaders after he immigrated to Israel in 1976. He reveals the flawed mentality of Israel's elites and their policy of 'land for peace.' Contributing to this failure is Israel's unstable system of multi-party cabinet government and the country's lack of a written Constitution. Eidelberg offers a Jewish-democratic version of the American Constitution, whose Hebraic roots were recognized by learned men of the eighteenth century.
