Item description for The Jewish State by Theodor Herzl...

'We shall live at last as free men on our own soil, and die peacefully in our own homes'. Theodor Herzl's passionate advocacy of the founding of a Jewish state grew out of his conviction that Jews would never be assimilated into the populations in which they lived. Herzl concluded that the only solution for the majority of Jews would be organised emigration to a state of their own. Herzl's political and social plea was the result of centuries of restrictions, hostility and pogroms against the Jews of Europe. His revolutionary proposal for the solution to anti-Semitism was a Jewish state, where Jews could live in peace, free from persecution - and this hugely influential essay led directly to the creation of Israel.

Reviews - What do customers think about The Jewish State?

Find a better edition  Jun 23, 2008
In this review I refer to this edition,from Filiquarian Publishing,only. Without question this document has extreme historical and philosophical importance. Everyone who has an interest in the history of Zionism, Israel, Jewish migration and development, or even just a general interest in sociology or economics should have a copy in their library. But not this edition! It is so rife with typographical errors, misspellings, dropped words and such that it is often unreadable. An hour or two's work by a copy editor would have made a world of difference.
The Bible of Zionism  Feb 8, 2008
This book is the basis of how the state Israel should be created according to the end of the 19th century "Wiener" Theodor Herzl.
In fact many of his considerings were used to create the zionist state Israel, except his idealistic and visionary view where Palestinians (Filistines originally from the Greek island Philistos) were given "a piece of the cake": jews and Palestinians were considered in his opinion to live peacefully and happy together in this "altneuland" or"aviv".
Jewish State  Feb 17, 2007
Not the best book to read on the subject, lacked a lot of information and found it to be not very interesting. Have read better ones on this subject.
Short, important classic  Nov 10, 2006
Herzl's book is a must-read for anyone who wants to get a sense of the Zionist movement and the passion of its most famous leader. It's a short book, easy to read, but provocative-- situating the reader in a period when Jews had both become emancipated from the ghetto and begun to attain some social and economic power. No surprise that anti-Semitism was an almost immediate result. I recommend it for Jews and non-Jews alike.
A book that changed the world   Nov 7, 2004
Many books are written. Few really change the world. This one did. It called for the creation of a Jewish state as a way of responding to the persecution the Jews suffered in Europe. Herzl was especially influenced by the Dryefuss trial and reasoned that if the Jews could not be accepted in what was then one of the most enlightened and progressive nations of the world then they would never ever really be accepted. Only a Jewish state in their ancient homeland, would enable them to live in dignity again.
Herzl's vision was as he prophesied realized just fifty years after the book's publication in 1897 when in November 1947 the UN called for partition of Mandatory Palestine into two states , one Jewish and one Arab. The Arabs refused to accept this, opened a war and the Jewish State was not founded in the way Herzl hoped by peaceful means , but rather on the battlefield.
Herzl saw the great need of the Jewish people in his time. He did not necessarily see the shape the state would take. Nor did he understand how difficult the path would be for Israel in the Middle East. The great pain and sadness of it all is that even if the state came as he had predicted in fifty years it did not come soon enough to save the Jews of Europe. Herzl saw the discrimination in Western Europe, and the poverty and oppression Jews faced in Eastern Europe. But his vision did not come soon enough to save the Jews from the horror of the Nazis. Israel has as Herzl hoped ingathered Jews not only from Europe but from close to one hundred nations. It is the only vibrant democracy in the Middle East.
This book will be especially instructive for those who wish to compare the ' dream of the Jewish state' with its reality today.
