    A former correspondent of the Washington Post and the Boston Globe, Yuval Elizur is a distinguished Israeli journalist and the fifth generation of his family to have been born in Jerusalem.

    Lawrence Malkin is an award-winning correspondent who served in London, Paris, Washington, New Delhi, Madrid, the United Nations, New York City and elsewhere for Time magazine, the International Herald Tribune, and The Associated Press. He lives in New York City.
    In recent years there has been a war raging within Israel -- but not the interminable conflict between the Israelis and Palestinians, as one might assume. For many Israelis, it is the internecine conflict with the ultra-orthodox Haredim that impacts their lives the most. The majority of Haredim -- raised with an intense focus on religion at the expense of all else -- are unemployable in a modern economy. Many choose to pursue religious studies, which the government subsidizes up to the age of 40.

    The first book on a conflict that is fast crystallizing into a national debate, The War Within is a lively and trenchant exploration of a battle between church and state as it plays out before our eyes in Israel today. As acclaimed journalists Yuval Elizur and Lawrence Malkin expose, the situation today has reached a critical point that threatens the state of Israel from within and must certainly affect its future.
