About This Item

Tel Aviv : Shtiebel. 1929-30. Hardcover. First edition. Original boards, 8vo. 340 pages, 20 cm. In Hebrew. Vladimir (Ze’ev) Jabotinsky (1880–1940) , Zionist leader, founder of Revisionist Party; he was involved in Zionist politics since the turn of the century in Russia, was famous as a publicist, poet, essayist, and orator in Russian, Hebrew, and Yiddish; he founded the Jewish Legion in the first world war, and in the 1920’s, founded the right-wing Revisionist Zionist movement Betar after having broken with mainstream Zionism. "The Zionist leader was also a brilliant novelist whose take on the biblical story of Samson is rich with blood and lust. But given the author’s identity, the book, while hugely entertaining, never strays far from political parable. As it draws to its end, the blind and defeated Samson has this advice for the Israelites as they once again face their sworn enemies: “they must get iron; they must choose a king; and they must learn to laugh. " (Tablet Magazine's "101 Great Jewish Books) ". SUBJECTS: Zionism – Biblical – Jabotinsky – Hebrew novel. Pages are browning. Good Condition. (Heblit-8-1) .
