Goliath: Life and Loathing in Greater Israel is New York Times bestselling author Max Blumenthal's devastating journey through Israel and an anatomy of the extremist takeover of a nation. What Blumenthal finds is a country overrun by extremists, where the Jewish Right has hijacked constitutional protections for both minorities and those in the majority who dissent. Blumenthal investigates the roots of these cultural and political shifts, as well as the malign American right-wing funders who are bankrolling Israeli extremism. He finds that the country US officials regard as the only foothold of democracy in the Middle East -- with which President Obama has said ''[our] bond is unbreakable'' -- is teetering on the edge of authoritarianism.
Informed by intensive on-the-ground reporting, Goliath paints a vivid portrait of a society turning its back on democracy and uncovers the factors - political, demographic, and psychological - that have transformed a nation.
