This book presents a comprehensive overview of the political movement that culminated in the state of Israel. Zionism: A Brief History explores the origins of Zionism within Jewish tradition, the variety of Zionist ideologies, and the political circumstances that fostered this movement. Jewish immigration to Palestine, shifting British policies, Arab reactions to Jewish settlements, and the impact of the Holocaust are among the book's central topics. A final chapter summarizes the major problems and achievements of the Jewish state, and examines possible directions for its post-Zionist future. When Theodor Herzi organized the first Zionist Congress in 1897, he was ridiculed as a dreamer. Half a century later, in 1948, the state of Israel was founded. Throughout its existence, Israel has been embroiled in serious conflicts with its Arab population and its neighbors. Within Israeli society, there is an ongoing struggle to redefine Zionism on religious and secular terms.
