by Barbara Sofer Israel's teens, both young men and women, must serve their country –either in the military or alternative service. In her new book, Keeping Israel Safe, journalist Barbara Sofer introduces us to four young people who are learning about their options and choosing how they will serve. The book chronicles the history of Israel's army from its pioneer days through the founding of the State, and shows how advanced technology and intelligence systems have led to the creation of one of the most admired armies in the world. Published to coincide with the 60th anniversary of the State of Israel, Keeping Israel Safe will be a welcome addition to school and home libraries. "[This] book is unique in its unwaveringly positive portrayal of the Israeli military. [A] welcome addition to library shelves." –School Library Journal
