Working as a land agent for one of the richest men in the world, Polish-Jewish immigrant Lev Sela stumbles upon a strategic area of land that doesn't exist on any map. The resultant struggle for ownership involves the Jews, Arabs, Zionists, British, a Russian engineer with ambitions to build a hydro-electric power station and the local Bedouin. The dispute also draws Lev into a relationship with a beautiful Scottish pioneer living on a nearby kibbutz. Touching on issues of identity, idealism, displacement, community, socialism and feminism, The Land Agent is the third title in J. David Simons' Scottish-Jewish magnum opus, the Glasgow to Galilee loose trilogy, which follows his award-winning novels The Credit Draper and The Liberation of Celia Kahn.
