'Bradt's new guidebook doesn't claim to offer an alternative 'roadmap' to Middle-East harmony but it does inform and will certainly enrich any visit to the world's most complex religio-political destination.' Travel Media 'Although the first [edition] was produced only two years ago, this updated version includes fresh information on eating places and hotels and in typical Bradt style features a wealth of useful material on everything from single words and phrases, to a potted history and touring essentials.' ... Samantha Wilson has included most of what not only the first time traveller but the seasoned visitor to Israel might need to know about the country. Jewish Telegraph
