The book assembled work from 42 photographers, well acquainted with the country through either living there permanently, or having visited Israel on different trips.

The 180 photos combine older images from the very early fifties and later ones taken over a twenty year period. It offers the opportunity to see common people engaged in daily life. It also has documentary evidence of the great work done by a small group of people living in the only Democracy in the Middle East.

Some of the photographs reflect the harsh existence in the late sixties, just two years after the 1967 War during which Israel fought off an army of 6 Arab nations.

The book is not about politics at all. It offers an opportunity to understand and acquaint ourselves again, many, many years later through such images the enormous willpower to forge a nation from different cultures on a small strip of what was then relatively inhabitable land.
