Zionism: The Tablet Guide

The definitive guide to the past, present, and future of modern Judaism’s most fantastical and magnetic idea—and the West’s most explosive political label

To mark the 75th anniversary of the creation of the State of Israel, we are releasing Zionism: The Tablet Guide.

From primary essays by Zionism’s utopian founders to interviews with modern political thinkers and essays and commentary from Tablet’s archives, this essential volume animates the currents and contradictions of an idea that both frightens and fascinates Jews and outsiders. Featuring an introduction by Tablet Editor-at-Large Liel Leibovitz and contributions from Ze’ev Jabotinsky, Shimon Peres, Noam Chomsky, George Steiner, Walter Russell Mead, Michael Walzer, Howard Jacobson, Matti Friedman, Dara Horn, Einat Wilf and others, this historic anthology deserves a place on the bookshelf of every politically interested person, Jewish or not.
