Pangs of the Messiah: The Troubled Birth of the Jewish State

Synopsis

Sicker examines the nature of the struggles within the Zionist community over the national idea and its implications, and the evolving interactions of that community with the external political environment. This leads him to assign a far more significant role to the so-called right-wing movements than is usually allotted to them in the traditional left-oriented historiography and to a more critical assessment of Zionist leadership.
