Overview

A classic account of Socialist-Zionist ideology which traces one powerful political component of the present state of Israel, the Left, and its contributions to the Kibbutz movement, women's rights, labor unions and some economic structures. Although abandoned as a popular movement in the 1970's, Gal's impassioned position shows with force and conviction how Socialist-Zionism created a society out of socially and culturally disparate persons, who shared no language, history or social customs in common. His progressive stance offers a competitive alternative to the current consensus in Israel. Originally published in 1973 by Schenkman Publishing Company, this edition contains a new Preface by Dr. Jacob Neusner.
