Editorial Reviews

Booknews
American, Israeli, and European scholars probe the issues surrounding the first 50 years of the Jewish state. They examine the initial Zionist movement as it existed around the world; controversies circling the making of Yishuv; the struggle for independence, both military and diplomatic; and the theoretical and religious foundations of Zionism, including the idea of sacred lands, and the formation of a state where none had existed before. Distributed by ISBS. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
