Play • 1 hr 1 min

In this episode, Helen speaks with Dr Rachel Havrelock about her new book The Joshua Generation: Israeli Occupation and the Bible. Rachel is Professor of English at the University of Illinois. In our conversation we discuss how the first Israeli prime minister David Ben Gurion used the conquest of Joshua to assist him in state-building; and the resources which the book itself offers to readers who wish to resist such nationalism.
