Focusing on the cultural invention of Zionism, the author of this study explores how and why the Jewish nationalist movement was embraced by assimilated Jews of Westerm Europe before World War I. He pays particular attention to the symbolism, artistic representations and mythology which attracted European Jews to Zionism, which co-existed equally with the nationalisms of their home countries. The book was originally published in 1993.
