The Future of the Kibbutz in A Divided IsraelPaperback - 2016
Say the word 'Israel' today and it sparks images of walls and rockets and a bloody conflict without end. Yet for decades, the symbol of the Jewish State was the noble pioneer draining the swamps and making the deserts bloom: the legendary kibbutznik. Chasing Utopia draws readers into the quest for answers to the defining political conflict of our era. Leach chronicles the controversial decline of Israel's kibbutz movement and witnesses a renaissance of the original vision for a peaceable utopia in unexpected corners of the Promised Land.
