The new title in the acclaimed and longstanding Frances Lincoln World Alphabets series takes Israel as its subject. From Alahan--hello and welcome--to delicious Falafel; from Jerusalem, the holy city for Jews, Christians, and Muslims, to Water, most precious in a desert land...Written and photographed in Israel, this is the perfect introduction to a fascinating and diverse country.
