"The Object of Zionism: The Architecture of Israel is a critical study of Zionist spatial planning and the architectural fabrication of the State of Israel from the early decades of the twentieth century to the 1960s and 1970s. It scrutinizes Israel as a singular modernist project--unprecedented in its relative scope and rates of growth, its political and ethical circumstances, and its hyper-production of spatial and structural experiments. This project entailed the molding of a new terrain, the construction of dozens of new towns and hundreds of new rural settlements, and the appropriation of post-war architectural trends, especially Brutalism and Structuralism, as signifiers of national vigour and cultural ingenuity. Contrary to common belief, the State of Israel was not born of emergency routine or speculative ventures, but rather with the objective of designing an instantaneous model state."--Publisher's description.

Excerpt from The Origin and Goal of Zionism: An Address Delivered at the Zionist Demonstration Held Under the Auspices of the Federation of Canadian Zionist Societies in Drummond Hall, Montreal, March 3rd 1901 Mr. Chairman, Ladies and Gentlemen: - I am cognizant of the fact that, while some of my listeners possess considerable knowledge about the aim and object of Zionism, there are here many others, who are as yet unitiated into the true meaning of Zionism. If they were conversant with the far-reaching ideals of the Zionist movement, there would not be any non-Zionists in our midst. To be imbued with the signification and the significance of Zionism and not be in sympathy with it, is like claiming to be standing on solid ground and be suspended in the air at the same time. They, who are in suspense about Zionism, will have to abandon the claim of standing on terra firma as far as the great Zionist problem is concerned. Man dreads that which is unknown to him. Very few are brave enough to venture out into a region with which they are unacquainted and about which they heard, as the dear old Bible says, "an evil report." It is the unacquaintance with the aspirations of Zionism which is responsible in most cases for the apathy to the cause. It is to the unitiated that I am addressing myself principally, and that will account for the historical aspect of Zionism, which I shall emphasize in the course of my address.

Detailed historical reconstruction of the origins of Jewish political thought. By tracing the development of Socialist Zionism and Revisionism in the years prior to Israel's independence, the book demonstrates how the political, social and economic foundations of the future state of Israel were negotiated in this period and how these ideologies have endured and are reflected in Israeli diplomacy. In this respect, the comprehensive analysis is key to an understanding of the basis of Israeli international relations and the fragmentary nature of its politics. The book promises to become a standard reference for students of Zionist and Israeli politics, as well as those interested in the Middle East generally.
