In recent years there has been an explosion of interest in Middle Eastern affairs. The conflict between Israel and the Palestinians is a constant theme on television and in newspapers. The images of heavily armed soldiers facing young Palestinian children hurling stones ' like Goliath facing David ' have evoked dismay and consternation. Throughout the world, anger has been expressed at the Jewish nation. Yet there is considerable misunderstanding about the origins and ideology of the Zionist movement and the transformation of these ideas into historical events. This volume seeks to provide a concise and comprehensive guide to the development of Zionism from its inception in the nineteenth century and the history of the Jewish state until the present day.
