Since its initial publication in 1997, Ahad Ha-am: The Zionism of the Future has become the definitive and standard study of one of Zionism’s most towering and influential figures. The republication of this classic text as an e-book is a cause for celebration for students of history, academics and the general public. No one knows Ahad Ha-am better or is better suited to deal with the life and thoughts of the icon of Hebraic cultural nationalism, and with the multivalent debates and conversations his ideas provoked. The book fills a vital gap in the study of early Zionism and of its greatest purveyor of serious ideas.

The autographs vary in tone and texture, colour and pulse; some resemble miniature stories, others are freely autobiographical, while others again present strange tableaux, searching meditations, or introduce a named, presumably fictitious protagonist.Learn More
