Zionism

Author : Carol Diament

Available : Rented
Age Group :Adults
This collection of 53 essays examines the concept of Zionism and explores the questions raised since Israel was established in 1948. A broad range of Jewish writers and thinkers are featured, including David Ben Gurion, Gerson Cohen, Ben Halpern, Mordecai Kaplan, Golda Meir, Amoz Oz, Cynthia Ozick, Ruth Wisse, and A. B. Yehoshua. Their diverse views constitute the center and both extremes of Zionist thought. The many aspects of Zionism discussed include pseudo-Zionism (considered by one writer to be a danger to the future of Jewry), crises in Zionism, interaction between Israel and American Jewry, the relationship between Israel and the Diaspora as a whole, Zionism?s so-called third stage, the struggle within religious Zionism, Reform Zionists? commitments, and the need for Zionism?s continued existence. This volume is essential for understanding the history of modern Zionist ideas and the issues raised by the creation of Israel. George Cohen
