Description: The People of Israel is a national entity with various names (Hebrew, Jews), a tortuous history of more than three thousand years, a religion, a culture, a common historical memory, and diverse hopes for the future.
The Land of Israel is the accepted appellation for a territory along the eastern coast of the Mediterranean Sea, a location which may be described as the crossroads of three continents: Asia, Europe, and Africa. Its names (such as Canaan and Palestine) as well as its real and utopian borders have changed over the ages.
The State of Israel is the fifty-seven-year-old state of that ancient people, only part of which lives in the land that bears its name, together with a not inconsiderable number of other peoples.
This volume is devoted to the ages-long, ongoing, and unbroken connection of the People of Israel to its ancient homeland, the Land of Israel, from the biblical period to the first two decades of the State of Israel. Its thirteen chapters were written by leading academics at Israeli universities, and are accompanied by many photographs, maps, and illustrations, mostly in color.
