As New. 8vo. xv, 422pp. Dark blue cloth w/gilt title to spine, housed in an illustrated jacket. Condition is impeccable both inside and out. Wendehorst explores the relationship between British Jewry and Zionism from 1936 to 1956, a crucial period in modern Jewish history encompassing both the shoah and the establishment of the State of Israel. The book argues that the trajectory of Zionism in British Jewry is best understood as a particularly complex, but not untypical, variant of the 19th and 20th centuries’ trend to re-imagine communities in a national key.
