https://www.american.edu/cas/israelstudies/images/book-jacket.pngThis episode begins a two-part series on how modern Israel came to be, what it is today and how it is making innovation its calling card to friendly and hostile nations alike.  In this episode, author and scholar Michael Brenner helps us to understand Zionism in an historical context and current day challenges for the state of Israel as it faces rapid transformation ethnically and culturally.  Of course, we touch upon the two-state solution and Israel’s relationship with the U.S. After you hear Michael, pick up his latest book, ‘In Search of Israel’.
