Jewish Values: Israel in the News: Past, Present, and Future

Publication Year: 
Number of Pages: 
128 p.
Designed to help students write reports, this book is part of the Middle East Nations in the News series. It has information on the geography, religion, culture, history, and economy of Israel as well as on the Arab-Israeli conflict. As with many non-fiction series, there are editorial lapses, such as a photo caption identifying the animal that an Arab girl is riding on as a jackal instead of a donkey. Using a password that the book provides, readers are directed to the webpage, with many links to government and mainstream journalism sources about Israel and the Middle East. Despite the editorial lapses, this is useful for students in grades 5 - 9.
