Nick Schenkel's Book Reviews on WBAA

Nick on WBAA    


Detractors of modern-day Israel often compare it to apartheid South Africa, but how valid are those claims? Journalist Benjamin Pogrund, who has lived in both modern Israel and apartheid South Africa, examines the comparison in his book Drawing Fire: Investigating the Accusations of Apartheid in Israel. West Lafayette Public Library Director Nick Schenkel has a review.
