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.
