Theodor Herzl: visionary of the Jewish State
How and why did this highly assimilated Austrol Hungarian journalist and playwright arrive at his Zionist "revelation" in Paris in 1895? What was the connection between the pre-Zionist Herzl and his subsequent meteoric career as leader of the movement for Jewish national redemption? The path-breaking original essays in this volume, especially written by foremost Herzl scholars worldwide, provide novel and at times surprising answers to these and many more questions.
