9781405835565: Zionism (A Short History of a Big Idea)

Zionism is an international political movement that was originally dedicated to the resettlement of Jewish people in the Promised Land, and is now synonymous with support for the modern state of Israel. This addition to the Short Histories of Big Ideas series looks at the controversial and topical notion of Zionism from a balanced viewpoint, concentrating on where it came from, how it accomplished its goals, and why it affected so many people.

From the Back Cover:

"This is a superb introduction to a crucial chapter in Jewish history for the uninitiated reader. In this engaging and highly accessible book, David Engel provides a concise, informative and lucid account of the history of the modern Zionist movement and its impact on both Israeli society and Israel’s relations with Diaspora Jewry."

Yael Zerubavel,  Professor of Jewish Studies & History at Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey, and author of Recovered Roots: Collective Memory and the Making of Israeli National Tradition.

"David Engel’s book is a masterpiece of brevity and insight, offering a sweeping survey of political Zionism – from its 19th century inception, through its practical realization, to its standing in contemporary Israel. The debate on Zionism as the liberation movement for Jews everywhere is greatly enriched by this fascinating study."

Ronald W. Zweig, Taub Professor of Israel Studies at New York University and author of Britain and Palestine During the Second World War.
