No Country for Jewish Liberals is a political history of Israel’s recent decades intertwined with a memoir by American-Israeli journalist Larry Derfner.

The author, a former Jerusalem Post writer currently on the staff of Haaretz, made aliya from Los Angeles in 1985, and recounts growing up in the southern part of that city, interacting with the predominantly African-American clientele of his father’s liquor store.
