The Idea of Israel: A History of Power and Knowledge
The Idea of Israel: A History of Power and Knowledge

4.0 out of 5 stars Well worth reading, Oct. 1 2015

Ilan Pappe excels again! He reviews the changing narratives that attempt to justify Israeli dispossession and atrocities against Palestinians and the vicious censorship and reprisals that those who challenge those narratives face. Well worth reading.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great adventure-mystery with a touch of environmental politics, Sept. 2 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Inspector Green and his side-kick Sullivan move from their usual Ottawa venue to take up a thrilling adventure-mystery set in the wilds of the BC Nahani park. Fradkin subtly exposes the environmental crimes of mining interests and the Conservative government. I found the premise of some of the plot a bit hard to swallow. But it's well researched, vivid, and a real page-turner

Simon Baker at his best! Amazing ending to the Red John hunt, and then the writers and cast achieve a complete transition to a new agency which opens even more opportunities for Jane's zany brilliance to shine.
