Description

Benjamin Pogrund, a foremost journalist in the struggle against apartheid and in more recent years an ardent worker for peace and social concern in Israel, brings to this study peerless qualifications for comparing the controversial historical experience of South Africa and Israel. With a combination of compassion, analytical insight, and judicious balance he unravels the welter of crass ignorance and malevolence that bedevils the contemporary polemic. (Prof. Gideon Shimoni, The Hebrew University of Jerusalem)

A serious, thoughtful, engaging and timely intervention amidst a flood of ahistorical and tendentious nonsense. Benjamin Pogrund, a renowned journalist, knows both Israel and Apartheid South Africa well. Brutally honest, he exposes crude and simplistic analogies while not shying away from the harshness of Israeli rule in the occupied territories. A must for those with an interest in comparative analysis. (Prof. Milton Shain, University of Cape Town)
