A sequel to The Origins of Zionism, this book traces the emergence of the Zionist movement through which the Jews were reformed as a political people. It concentrates on 1897, when Herzl launched the Zionist movement, and the following decade, which saw the establishment of the movement's main ideas and central institutions, its modes of political, social and economic action and its internal ideological and party political divisions on such issues as religious orthodoxy and socialism.

About the Author:

David Vital is at Northwestern University, Illinois.

Review:


"The book's superb readability, wide contextual perspectives, and fine organization make it most suitable for classroom use...One can only look forward to the volumes to come. They promise to constitute a definitive history of Zionism."--American Historical Review


"The foremost authority on modern Zionism...He is at his most brilliant in his analysis of the inner mood of the Zionist movement and the meanings, definitions and goals which its first and second rank leaders imposed upon it."--American Jewish History


"A lively and important treatment of a crucial period in the development of modern Zionism, the period between 1897, when Theodor Herzl convened the first Zionist Congress, and 1906, when, Vital argues, the Zionist movement assumed its definitive shape...Provide[s] excellent, detailed accounts of Herzl's efforts to win international recognition for a Jewish homeland in Palestine...Excellent."--The Historian


"An excellent treatment of the subject, far more detailed than the more general work by Walter Laqueur."--Perspective


"Highly recommended to students of Zionism, Israel, and Jewish history and to all who appreciate a well-crafted history."--Orbis


"Vital writes with masterly command of historical data. Anyone who now writes of Zionism seeking knowledge of the background of European nationalism will welcome Professor Vital's responsibly written book. Its contribution as a background to the study of the Palestine problem is at once evident."--The Annals of the American Academy of Political and Social Science


"The first great virtue of Vital's work is that he has thoroughly digested the vast amount of material he has used, and done so with what one can only call magisterial judgment...Vital's approach allows him to give the most comprehensive account of the whole range of the Zionist-related developments in this period yet written."--Studies in Contemporary Jewry, Volume I
