"Informal, on-the-spot impressions from Elmer Berger, Executive Director of the American Council for Judaism, during seven and a half weeks he and his wife Ruth recently spent in the Middle East. We do believe that the spontaneity of spirit in which the letters are written and the information they contain (particularly the reports of Jews living in the Arab nations) will interest a larger American audience at a time when world events are compelling a greater amount of attention to the Middle East. We believe these letters offer valuable background material and unusual insights, containing much that has never before been published." - Introduction. Unmarked with average wear. Binding intact.
