Zionism: A Very Short Introduction

Michael Stanislawski

Very Short Introductions

  • Offers an unbiased assessment of Zionism and its significance as an intellectual and cultural movement, beyond its contentious political implications
  • Clarifies current debates over the Israel-Palestine conflict, the anti-Israel and anti-Semitic sentiments in Western states, and the politics of American Jewry
  • Shows how Zionism revolutionized internal Jewish culture, drawing on the premise that Jews constitute a nation, and not a religion
