Traces how the movement originated in the radical right of European politics, spurned British help to seek alliance with the Axis powers, shifted to leftist ideas and sought alignment with the Soviet Union, and splintered once it became legal within the State of Israel. Paper edition (4106-5) $25.00. Distributed by ISBS. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
