Description - Dear Zealots by Amos Oz
'His parting shot at opposing the storm of fanaticism breaking over our times' Financial Times
Dear Zealots is an essential collection of three essays 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.
'Concise, evocative... a brilliant book of thoughts and ideas' David Grossman
