Overview

Theodor Herzl, Architect of a Nation, is the compelling account of a complex individual who sacrificed his health and family in pursuit of an ideal: the establishment of a homeland where Jews throughout the world could go to escape anti-Semitism. "If you will it, it is no dream," he said.

This book sheds valuable light on a man whose short, eventful life helped create and shape the modern State of Israel. Norman H. Finkelstein focuses on the ideas that Herzl gave to the Zionist movement and on the grand diplomacy and political maneuvering to which he devoted his life.

Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 6-9-- This well-written, well-researched revision (Watts, 1987) opens with a description of Herzl's reburial in Israel. Finklestein portrays his subject as a complex, intense man ultimately driven by the desire to establish a Jewish homeland. He dedicated his life to this concept, exploring political and economic possibilities that are described in detail. Black-and-white photographs provide an added dimension, enhancing the narrative and furnishing supplementary information. The text appears to be essentially unchanged; some of the photographs--and the cover--are different; the format is more open. --Susan Kaminow, Arlington County Public Library, VA
