Ari Shavit is a senior correspondent for Ha'aretz and a member of its editorial board. He is the author of the recently published My Promised Land: The Triumph and Tragedy of Israel. "Facing unprecedented internal and external pressures, Israel today is at a moment of existential crisis. Through revealing stories of significant events and of ordinary individuals--pioneers, immigrants, entrepreneurs, scientists, army generals, peaceniks, settlers, and Palestinians--Israeli journalist Ari Shavit illuminates many of the pivotal moments of the Zionist century that led Israel to where it is today."
