“This is one memoir of Israel that should not be missed. Dr. Joyce Starr has written an insider’s account of Israeli life that covers all of Israeli social strata from kibbutz life to the leaders of Israel’s governments over time…through her lovely written prose you feel the same sense of discovery and adventure that she felt when she served as a kibbutz volunteer.” – Dr. Kenneth C Leiter, Amazon 5 Star Review
Dr. Joyce Starr exposes behind the scenes battles over Israeli and Middle East water policy that diluted the peace process. She also illuminates the spiritual view of water set forth in sacred writings and how this legacy has shaped the current political terrain. Starr outlines essential steps Israel and her neighbors must take to prevent water shortages, pollution and famine in the future. “A masterful work which touches at one and the same time both the shores of spirituality and the hardball Middle Eastern real politic.”
