    DescriptionThe ebbing support for Israel among Western Governments is a major landmark in the history of the last decade and is, without a doubt, an issue that has already influenced many international events. Richard Ben Cramer, who has a Pulitzer Prize for his coverage of the Middle East, now presents readers with HOW ISRAEL LOST, a definitive study of the once-triumphant country that has failed in the eyes of the world. Cramer gets to the core of what is troubling so many Westerners about Israel: the contradiction between its humanistic foundation and its harsh treatment of the Palestinians. Since Israel was founded, the West has seen it as a beacon of hope and democracy in a hostile world. Cramer describes how in the past ten years Israelis seem to have squandered that respect and good will, focusing on the key players and crucial events that have turned the tide against Israel in the eyes of the international community. With the same meticulous research and intelligence that has made Richard Ben Cramer one of America's most highly regarded journalists, HOW ISRAEL LOST is a timely, powerful and important look at one of the most pivotal points of the world - and in history.
