Gershom Gorenberg is the author of the forthcoming book, The Unmaking of Israel, on the crisis of Israeli democracy and how to solve it. The book will be published in November by HarperCollins.
Gershom's previous book is The Accidental Empire: Israel and the Birth of the Settlements, 1967-1977 (Times Books). Based on previously unpublished documents and extensive interviews, The Accidental Empire presents a strikingly new picture of Israel's post-1967 history, of major Israeli leaders, and of Israel-U.S. relations.
He is also the author of The End of Days: Fundamentalism and the Struggle for the Temple Mount, which portrays the role of religious radicalism in the Mideast conflict. He co-authored The Jerusalem Report's 1996 biography of Yitzhak Rabin, Shalom Friend, winner of the National Jewish Book Award, and edited Seventy Facets: A Commentary on the Torah from the Pages from the Jerusalem Report.
