Product description


"Cramer writes beautifully, and with intention. He seeks to force his readers, no matter what their stance might have been when they opened his book, to examine the harsh truths behind U.S. policies in the Middle East."
-- John Nichols, The Progressive

"Told without fear, this is a story that could -- if read with an open mind -- stir a much needed and honest debate about the future of U.S.-Israel relations."
-- Bob Kerrey, former Senator from Nebraska and President of The New School

"Cramer presents a strong case. You might not agree, but it's impossible to read this book and not think."
-- Jeff Guinn, Fort Worth Star-Telegram

"Cramer...marshals facts and vivid anecdotes to back up his case."
-- Barbara Slavin, USA Today

"How Israel Lost has many virtues: moving stories about Israeli and Palestinian suffering; shrewd reporting...and a street-smart attitude that cuts through the fog of government doublespeak and partisan myth."
-- Jonathan Dorfman, The Boston Globe

"Solid and irrefutable...Cramer's theme is the tragic predicament of the Israelis and Palestinians...funny and bitterly sad, shrewd and down-to-earth....This book is a powerful polemic that deserves to be read."
-- Amos Elon, The New York Review of Books
