This fascinating and well-written book really illuminates the political-diplomatic struggles of the 1940s that led up to the creation of Israel. Among other things, it reveals the behind-the-scenes lobbying efforts by Zionist activists in Washington, including previously unknown relationships that conservative Zionists established with Republican legislators--at a time when most other Jewish leaders worked almost exclusively with liberal Democrats. "Militant Zionism in America" is also chock full of intriguing episodes that I've never read about anywhere else, such as how a militant Zionist play that raised funds for the Palestine underground militias was used to put an end to discrimination against blacks in Baltimore's theaters! There are also compelling chapters on how American Zionists smuggled weapons to the Jewish fighters in Palestine, and how the FBI spied on the Zionists for nearly a decade. Highly recommended.
