Reviews

"There is much in its gruesome vignettes of modern Israeli hypernationalism in action ... heart-wrenching." David Shulman, New York Review of Books "[A] bold, personal and unapologetic book." Salon "Goliath is a particular kind of expose-minded, documentary-broadside journalism whose place we generally recognize and respect... Blumenthal has made a sobering prima facie case that there are extreme forces [within Israel's current political-social dynamics] to be aware of, and reckoned with more fully that American discourse usually does." James Fallows, The Atlantic "Goliath...shows in forensic detail the reality of the Israeli mainstream's embrace blatant racism against Arabs and Africans." Antony Loewenstein, TheGuardian.com "[A] heart stopper... Goliath is a threat to the Israeli status quo...because it tells too many inconvenient truths." Larry Gross, Director of the USC Annenberg School for Communication "Max Blumenthal's Goliath: Life and Loathing in Greater Israel is the most important political and investigative journalist book of 2013." TarheelDem, Firedoglake Reader Diaries "Brave reporting of a sad, even tragic tale. Makes me wish he wrote for the New York Times." Stephen Walt, Professor of International Affairs at Harvard University's John F. Kennedy School of Government "Erudite, hard-hitting, [Goliath has] the potential to influence American public opinion on Israel..." Rayyan Al-Shawaf, Mondoweiss "[Blumenthal is] genuinely interested in the truth, and knows that the truth in politics often lurks in those dark caves of viciousness... [Goliath is] the kind of book that you just open to any chapter and quickly get a sense of both the particular and the whole. You'll find yourself instantly immersed in an engrossing family romance-one part tender, one part train-wreck-and wish you had the entire day to keep reading. Put it down, and pick it up the next day, and you'll have the exact same feeling." Corey Robin, associate professor of political science at Brooklyn College and the CUNY Graduate Center "A rich, roiling examination of 'the State of Israel during a period of deepening political and societal crisis' ... Blumenthal is an enterprising reporter." Kirkus Reviews "[A] bold and shocking book, presenting persuasively a major theoretical and polemical argument about Israel almost completely at odds with the image most Americans have of it... Even those generally well-informed about Israel and its occupation of the Palestinian territories will have their views challenged by Blumenthal's sharp eye and deadpan factual presentations." The American Conservative "[A] scathing critique of the Jewish State... Supporters of Israel should be encouraged to read this book...As Israel's greatest supporters, American Jews who care at all about the future of the country need to understand what's happening within the borders." The New York Observer "I would like to send a copy [of Goliath] to every Jew I know...This is the sort of book that even if you want to diss it, you can't dismiss it." Charles H. Manekin, Professor of Philosophy, Director of the Joseph and Rebecca Meyerhoff Center of Jewish Studies at the University of Maryland "Blumenthal's new book offers an unflinching look at the racist reality of Israel that America's establishment media simply does not have the guts to confront." Ali Abunimah, Electronic Intifada
