Zionisms Abound

Historian Gil Troy recently published an updated and expanded version of Arthur Hertzberg’s classic anthology of Zionist thought, The Zionist Idea. Troy’s The Zionist Ideas: Visions for the Jewish Homeland—Then, Now, Tomorrow (Jewish Publication Society) collects 170 diverse voices on Zionism.

Allan Arkush critiqued The Zionist Ideas in our Fall 2018 issue. Troy responded to Arkush, first by commenting on our website and then in a full piece found here. Arkush’s response to Troy can be read here. Among other things, this lively exchange concerns the sources of Theodore Herzl’s Zionism and whether and in what ways Troy’s book is a worthy successor to Hertzberg’s original.

Two book jackets, each picturing Israeli flags.

Through this new book we get a disturbing picture of how students and faculty in the self-proclaimed progressive movement have demonized and marginalized Israel, its advocates, and anyone who wishes to genuinely learn about the Jewish State.
