    schema:description "This collection - published here in English for the first time - brings together a number of political, personal, and literary pieces by Israel's most celebrated modern novelist. Lively, questioning, and undogmatic, the author's compelling literary insights make for consistently stimulating reading, while his perceptive commentary on Israel's political and cultural situation seems more relevant then ever in the light of current developments in the Middle East. Topics covered include: an examination of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict as a dispute between 'right and right'; reflections on the character of Zionism, on the concept of 'homeland', and on the nature of the kibbutz; the meaning of socialism in the Israeli context; and portraits of several Jewish writers and thinkers whose ideas and themes have proved influential or determinative for Amos Oz himself."@en ;
    schema:description "These essays, which put a unique perspective on the author's own experiences and development, reveal a complex and humane figure of practical political influence as well as of significant literary stature. Their refreshing blend of scepticism and idealism are sure to win for Oz new readers, while delighting those already familiar with his writings, who will recognise here the many qualities which have generated international critical acclaim."@en ;
