"Brilliant, far-reaching, passionate. . .sweeping and marvelously detailed. . .finely, intimately, movingly drawn. . . a book for the ages." --The New York Times "[Elon] is a master of the telling anecdote. . ..One should be grateful for what Elon has done." --Los Angeles Times "A work packed with beautifully sketched portraits, and constructed with a practiced eye for memorable, well-executed anecdotes." --The New York Times Book Review "Impressive. . .Could hardly be improved upon." --The New York Review of Books "If there is one book Americans should read this winter, it is Amos Elon's The Pity of It All--a meticulous and wrenching history of a people in a place at a moment in time that bears urgently upon our own." --Joan Didion, author of Political Fictions
