A critic: I like the maps and walktroughs of the Michelin's Green Guide Series. The Footprint Israel handbook gave alot of useful information, yet tried to write the book so that it wouldn't go out of date so fast.

These brand-new or newly updated guides feature the authoritative and detailed coverage characteristic of all Footprint Handbooks. A critic: I like the maps and walktroughs of the Michelin's Green Guide Series. Thus, there is a lack of information on backpacking and student travel specifics. ISBN 1-900949-48-2.

Agreed, as previously stated by many reviewers, this book contains some egregious, unwarranted commentary, and unmistakably presents negative opinion as "fact." (And as a minor point of information, the 2nd edition's cover is blue, not purple.)

Nevertheless, the book also contains a great deal more useful information, not to mention area maps, than many other Israel guides. There are, for example, maps of Beer Sheva and many other towns in the Negev that other guides do not even mention. There are also excellent descriptions of numerous national parks and nature walks, off the beaten track.

While using this book, in short, ignore the commentary, and limit your attention to the what, where and how to see Israel, from the Galilee and Golan, south to Eilat. The writer demonstrates complete ignorance concerning Israeli politics and Judaism. So ignore that content.

Nevertheless, this book provides an excellent guide to the physical and historical beauties of this tiny country. Overall, despite the book's deep anti-Israel biases, it proved quite useful for us.

This book is out of print and should stay that way. I made the mistake of taking a public library copy of the book to Israel on a recent trip there without reading it first, and too late discovered that it was a political tract, not a guidebook. The author is a typical British ivory tower apologist who is able to convince himself that siding with the "oppressed" puts him in the intellectual vanguard. In a book so full of misinformation and half-truths that it would take another book just to tease them all out of the text, here is just one choice example: page 211, where he actually says that a tourist worried about safety should be "equally vigilant" to avoid areas where Israelis could attack Palestinians, including tear gas attacks, since "Israeli police don't discriminate" between Arabs and tourists. Of course, in describing the supposedly "rare" attacks on Jews, there is no mention of who the perpetrators are of these "rare" events, and the author actually suggests that such attacks could be avoided if only those arrogant Jews would stop provoking people with their "outward displays of Jewishness" and their "'amusing' IDF t-shirts." The thousands who have been shot, stabbed, blown up, or otherwise murdered or injured by Arabs give the lie to this disgusting piece of work.

This guide is the ultimative way to know this country. I live in Israel and I've known places that my friends even haven't heard of, because of this guide. When you live in a country and you had already been in the major sites, this guide brings you to the interesting places near home that you passed by bus every day and you didn't know they were there. Also, the historical background is superb; I've used it even for college papers (a constant in Footprint guides). For a traveller staying only two weeks, I would choose a less comprehensive guide. But if you really want to KNOW the country, to be informed about israeli everyday behavior, and to be entertained, this is the book. A critic: I like the maps and walktroughs of the Michelin's Green Guide Series. There aren't here. But also aren't all the drawbacks of the Michelin book (sites in alphabetic order? that's lame for a real traveller).
Update 2005: A Pro-Palestinian view? I revised this book time after time, and I can say that the political commentary in it is truly balanced. The critics about (the old) Yad Vashem maybe had some effect over the new museum, more effective in its message. Most of the critics to this book probably come from people at home with the ideas of the Likud Party (not Sharon, of course) or at its right. Is still the best book to visit Israel for more than two weeks (after 5 years!).

Maybe even pro-Palestinian. There is no doubt that anyone having problems with Yad Vashem (as this author does, arguing that the Grand Mufti of Jerusalem should not have been included in the exhibit, never mind that he was a major reason Jews could not go to Palestine to escape the holocaust) has to be at least a bit anti-semitic and anti-Israel There are other problems in this guide. Having been in Israel many times before, I agree that this guide has many items other guides do not have. But the tone and the bias of the author is hard to overlook. I suggest you look elsewhere for a more balanced view. All in my opinion, of course. I'd have preferred giving it no stars.
