The Returns of Zionism is a sharply critical intellectual and literary history of the Zionist movement and its principal progeny, the State of Israel. The book represents a milestone in the study of Zionism. Unlike the great majority of writers in this crowded field, Gabriel Piterberg is concerned both with the intentions of the Zionists and with their actual impact on the native population of Palestine. He breaks down the familiar mould and rearranges the pieces. The author uses the whole panoply of sources in all the.

April 2010 · Studies in Ethnicity and Nationalism. The essay analyses the few testimonies regarding Callisthenes, an Athenian politician of Demosthenes' age generally neglected by the modern scholarship. Callisthenes, politically active since 357 (when he had a financial role), can be considered an early anti-Macedonian and seems to have had an important role on the political scene for a long time: he was, in fact, probably part of the group that.

In The Returns of Zionism, Gabriel Piterberg tries to make amends with an analysis of the intellectual and literary origins of the Zionist ideology. He begins unpromisingly by saying that other studies "adhere to an Idealist causality, because they privilege not only the ideational sphere but also the intentions of the Zionist settlers", whereas his own book will insist "on collapsing several alleged dichotomies". And yet one would never guess from these books that the passionate Jewish opposition to Zionism once had nothing to do with its effects on the Arabs and everything to do with its potential effects on the Jews.

In this original and wide-ranging study, Gabriel Piterberg examines theideology and literature behind the colonization of Palestine, from the latenineteenth century to the present. Exploring Zionism’s origins in Central-EasternEuropean nationalism and settler movements, he shows how its texts can beplaced within a wider discourse of western colonization. Revisiting the work ofTheodor Herzl and Gershom Scholem, Anita Shapira and David Ben-Gurion, andbringing to light the writings of lesser-known scholars and thinkersinfluential in the formation of the Zionist myth, Piterberg breaks openprevailing views of Zionism, demonstrating that it was in fact unexceptional,expressing a consciousness and imagination typical of colonial settlermovements. Shaped by European ideological currents and the realities ofcolonial life, Zionism constructed its own story as a unique and impregnableone, in the process excluding the voices of an indigenous people—thePalestinian Arabs.

An absolute must. There is too much to refer to. I am reading it
for the second time and expect to reread it often. Other takes
see Michael Prior, THE BIBLE AND COLONIALISM" and
Norman Finklesteins two major contributions, THE HOLOCAUST
INUSTRY and IMAGE AND REALITY. The reader learns each
time he/she picks the book up.

Third rate ideological screed. Can't really be considered scholarship. Not supported at all by facts but seems to be interested in making a point.

Professor himself is currently charged with sexual assault of female students. He has settled a civil charge on the issue admitting guilt

Very well written, fascinating, and very mind opening. Recommended for anyone who wants to understand what Israel has meant to the "West" in the past and what it will mean for the "East" in the future.
