An acclaimed U.S. professor of history finds his roots in a personal journey through Israel--and through assimilated America, academia, baseball, and family--headlong into deep tensions about country, culture, identity and religion. Worried about the commitment of Jews to their heritage, Auerbach (renowned author of Unequal Justice) shares his story and musings with insight, irony, and intensity.
