About Zionism: Speeches and Lectures By Professor Albert Einstein

By Einstein, Albert; Simon, Leon [Translator]

New York: The Macmillan Company of Canada Limited. Hardcover. [8] 9-94 pages. Select Bibliography. First published in London in 1930. "Professor Einstein is better known as a physicist than as a Zionist. Yet for many years he has given abundant proof both of a keen interest in Zionism and of a penetrating insight into its underlying ideas. He is impelled to Zionism by his acute consciousness of the excessive price at which the blessings of assimilation are bought by the Jewish communities of the Western world, which for him are mainy represented by that of Germany. The price is a loss of solidarity, of moral independence and self-respect. These, in his view, can be regained only if assimilated Jews find some common task, of absolute human value, to which they can bend their corporate energies as Jews. Such a task is to be found in the restoration of Jewish national life in Palestine." - Introduction. Unmarked with average wear. Backstrip lettering faded. Binding tight. A sound copy of this important compilation. Emanuel p.51. . Good. 1931. First American Edition.

New York: Frederick Fell Inc.. Hardcover. xviii, 222 pages. Black and white photographic plates. "When the Germans invaded Hungary in 1944, they immediately shipped virtually the entire Jewish population to Auschwitz.

Through the doctor's eyes, we relive not only the day-to-day horrors of life in the KZ but also witness the slow disintegration of an empire built to last a thousand years. What Dr. Nyiszli lived through few will want to believe or even read about." - dust jacket.

Rome and Jerusalem: A study in Jewish nationalism

By Hess, Moses

New York: Bloch Pub. Co. Hardcover. B00085RYZQ 233 pages. "All other Zionist thinkers of the nineteenth century proved the necessity of the rehabilitation of Israel in his ancient land on the basis of prevailing anti-Semitism or economic and cultural reasons. Hess and his medieval predecessor are the only ones who viewed Jewish nationalism and its development as a link in the process of human civilization as a whole, and Zionism as a necessary consequence of that process." - Translator's Preface to the Second Edition. "A Jewish classic more timely today than when it was first published eighty years ago - from dust jacket (Please note: dust jacket NOT included). An online review suggests Theodor Herzl only learned of this book after writing his "The Jewish State" in 1896, and he felt much of his writing was superfluous to that of Hess.
