A book on the history of the Zionist movement. It is written from both a sympathetic and a critical stance - sympathetic to the history of suffering that created Zionism, critical of the human reality that Zionism has created, and sympathetic towards those who suffer because of it now - Palestinians and Israelis. The book avoids the mystification, rhetoric and slogans used by both sides in the conflict and assesses not only the history of Zionism, but also the way in which it has been examined and dissected. It traces the emergence of political Zionism from its utopian form, the creation of Israel and the origins and ideological background to the present crisis.show more
