A pesar del pasado común y la herencia histórica de siglos, se tardó 38 años en el establecimiento desde la fundación del estado de Israel y una década desde la muerte de Franco para que las relaciones entre Jerusalén y Madrid fueran completas.

Este libro analiza qué hizo que se tardara tanto y qué pasó a partir de entonces, para que España llegara a jugar un papel tan importante en la firma de acuerdos de paz referentes a Israel y Palestina, entre otros temas.
