Item Description: Richard R. Smith, New York, 1931. Original Cloth. Book Condition: Very Good. Dust Jacket Condition: Very Good. 1st Edition. At the time of this cataloguing this is the only copy of this increasingly sought-after 251 page masterwork listed on ABE! Presented in the publisher's original unbumped red cloth with black titling and lime-colored endpapers. Original Unclipped Dust Jacket is just a bit cracked at edges and corners. The English title of Albert Londres' book, "The Jew Has Come Home? (a translation, by William Staples, was published in 1931, but is long out of print), is one that, with a question mark appended to it, might encapsulate the controversy that has attached itself to Israel's existence since Zionism's early days. What makes his insights all the more riveting and amazing is that Londres himself had nothing to do with Jews or Judaism and held no preconceptions about them. A French journalist who covered injustice in obscure regions, Londres (1884-1932) found in the Jews only an unknown, intriguing topic, whose investigation sent him in the late 1920s on a journey to the far reaches of Eastern Europe and then to Palestine of the British Mandate days. And so, the voice speaking here is not that of an "insider?; rather, in this book, all of us, "the Jews,? are an object of scrutiny, a strange, alien other. A wonderful addition to any serious Cultural Studies and Appreciation collection. Enough said though of choice offerings and wise investments. Read to learn; go forth to share.the tradition of Hirschfeld Galleries since 1931. Make it your tradition today. Size: 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall. Hardcover. Bookseller Inventory # 004058
