Not too easy. Not too difficult.
Lectures: Professor Zweig lectures straight for the entire lecture in an Australian accent in a story-like fashion. Pretty interesting but taking notes is slightly tiring. Work: Readings aren't too necessary, but I would skim through them. If you skip the lectures I think you'll miss a lot of information. Recitation: Pretty useless for Abusalim, but I think other TAs made students do presentations and other things. A paper or two but they are really minor.
I loved learning about Israel. The country is of incredible political importance right now and it's interesting to learn about the young country from so many aspects. The only issue is that it's told almost solely from an Israeli, so beware of that.

Advice for students:
Go to lectures. Take notes. Or use mine. Ha
