Overview

Zionism was an inspired movement that sought a homeland for the stateless and persecuted Jewish people. Yet it trampled on the rights of the Arabs in Palestine. Today it has become so controversial that it defies understanding and trumps reasoned public debate. So argues prominent British writer Jacqueline Rose, who uses her political and psychoanalytic skills in this book to take an unprecedented look at Zioism-one of the most powerful ideologies of modern times. For anyone concerned with the conflict in Israel-Palestine, this timely book offers a unique understanding of Zionism as an unavoidable psychic and historical force.
