About the Author

Antony Lerman is a Senior Fellow of the Bruno Kreisky Forum for International Dialogue in Vienna. He has written on multiculturalism, racism, antisemitism, and Israel/Palestine for the Guardian, Independent, New York Times, London Review of Books, Prospect, The Nation, New Statesman and Haaretz. He is the author of The Making and Unmaking of a Zionist: A Personal and Political Journey (Pluto, 2012) and editor of Do I Belong? (Pluto, 2017).


'An honest and moving account of how Antony Lerman - like so many Jewish liberals of his generation - fell in and out of love with the Zionist dream as translated into Israeli reality' -- Rabbi David J. Goldberg, author of This Is Not the Way: Jews, Judaism and Israel (2012)
'In this very courageous, personal yet intellectual expose, Antony Lerman, who, unlike many of his peers, refused to cross the red lines into the ideological territory of ethnocentric particularism, explores his journey to and from Zionism' -- Avraham Burg, former Speaker of the Israeli Knesset and author of The Holocaust is Over: We Must Rise From its Ashes (2008)
'Lerman's journey from fervent Zionist to thoughtful critic of Zionism is fascinating enough. But this rich and compelling account also charts his sustained vilification and shows how extensively bigotry has replaced reason in the Middle East debate' -- Anne Karpf, sociologist, journalist and author of The War After: Living With the Holocaust (1996)
