'Concise, evocative... Dear Zealots is not just a brilliant book of thoughts and ideas – it is a depiction of the struggle of one man who, for decades, has insisted on keeping a sharp, strident and lucid perspective in the face of chaos and at times of madness' David Grossman, winner of the Man Booker International Prize This essential collection of three new essays was written out of a sense of urgency, concern, and a belief that a better future is still possible. It touches on the universal nature of fanaticism and its possible cures; the Jewish roots of humanism and the need for a secular pride in Israel; and the geopolitical standing of Israel in the wider Middle East and internationally. Amos Oz boldly puts forward his case for a two-state solution in what he calls ‘a question of life and death for the State of Israel’. Wise, provocative, moving and inspiring, these essays illuminate the argument over Israeli, Jewish and human existence, shedding a clear and surprising light on vital political and historical issues, and daring to offer new ways out of a reality that appears to be closed down.

Dear Zealots: Letters from a Divided Land by Amos Oz and Jessica Cohen: Conversation Starters Amos Oz does not exempt himself from being called a fanatic and proposes that readers embrace the responsibility of facing the fanatic who resides in our own souls. He provides a closer look at Judaism and asks what its essence is. The book is considered by critics as a necessary work that tackles urgent matters addressing the rise of zealotry all over nations worldwide, including Israel. Oz gives an eloquent discussion of Jewish traditions of dissent, disagreement, and doubt. He cites the Jews' love of Hebrew literature and says that "the Jews who engage with the present as much as the past " are the most Jewish. Amos Oz was an internationally multi-awarded Israeli-born author also known for Judas and the autobiographical Panther in the Basement.

In a world no longer simple with clear enemies and ready strategies to protect oneself, the aging warriors from the Vietnam era are forced to once again fight for their lives. This time, it's not against a peasant force in the steamy jungles of Vietnam defending their homeland. This time they find themselves under attack in the forests of their own homeland by a fanatical force of Jihadists dedicated to the destruction of America itself. In addition o being vastly outnumbered and aging, the Americans have a unique disadvantage: they are all amputees. The only advantage that the Americans have is now it's their homeland that they are defending. To the end, it's not clear whether or not that and the few friendlies that are able to be recruited to the cause will be enough to prevail over their adversaries. The Vietnam Vets Amputee Group is both inspirational and an ode to those brave soldiers that fought not so long ago. They finally might be accorded the respect that they deserve, perhaps posthumously, from a changed and grateful nation.

This book presents, for the first time in English, a collection of previously unpublished Menshevik documents from the Hoover Institution Archives. It draws a dramatic picture of the Russian Civil War and the establishment of the Communist dictatorship as witnessed by the Russian Social Democrats, or Mensheviks. When the opposing Bolsheviks consolidated their power to emerge as the ruling party of the 1917 revolution, the Mensheviks' political influence was swept away and most were driven to exile in Siberia. These are not official party statements, but vivid reports, letters, and eyewitness accounts by Mensheviks who came from diverse walks of life and lived in various areas within the Soviet Union. A mosaic of individual portraits, specific situations, and tragedies illustrates the conflict, struggle, and repression during the period of Soviet politics under Lenin. Vladimir Brovkin has focused this unusual collection not on governments and key rulers, but on the accounts of ordinary citizens testifying to the historic power struggle that raged between the two political parties as they vied for supremacy within post-czarist Russia. Brovkin has skillfully edited the letters, reports, and documents in this book to create a unique documentary history of the Russian Revolution and the ensuing Civil War.

Cultural Writing. Politics. Memoir. What started as the angry scribblings of a caterer in Florida evolved into much more as the infamous Al-Qaeda soon became Scott Creney's closest confidante in this accidental memoir of letters to the world's most notorious terror organization. Scott lived in Florida in 2004 and worked as a caterer. In a world were nothing seemed to make sense anymore, and even television seemed like another hostile face of humanity, Scott began writing to someone whom he imagined was as bitter and confused as he: Al-Qaeda. Alone, in debt and utterly broke, Scott's day-to-day struggles to stay afloat, both financially and mentally, are a fascinating look at America from an outsider's perspective. Through engaging and at times disarmingly beautiful prose, Scott represents the voice of a new class of Americans-college-educated, but in debt and often unemployed. He is a member of an emerging generation of Americans who are worse-off than their parents, and who are struggling just to clear the poverty line. He puts his finger on the pulse of what it means to be an American, and how confused those meanings have become to all of us.
