Description - Theodor Herzl and the Origins of Zionism by Ritchie Robertson

This volume commemorates Theodor Herzl, the Viennese journalist and writer who, incongruously, founded Zionism as a political movement which led ultimately to the founding of the State of Israel. The contributors look at Herzl and seek to place him in historical context. In particular, they examine his relations with Viennese contemporaries, his use of his position as a prominent journalist to obtain audiences with world leaders, his negotiations with Germany and Britain to obtain a national territory for the Jews, and his attempts to analyze and reshape the Jewish character in his fictional writings.

Buy Theodor Herzl and the Origins of Zionism by Ritchie Robertson from Australia's Online Independent Bookstore, Boomerang Books.
