... an excellent book... provides valuable insights into a broad range of cutting-edge topics in the social sciences such as ethnic and identity politics, nation building, transnationalism and diasporas." -ChoiceThis book will take its place as a classic in the field..." -Journal of Church and State... a lucid formulation of post-Zionist ideology for the generation of the 1980s and 1990s." -International Journal of Middle East StudiesIt is... a remarkable experience to read Evron's thoughtful book. He finds much to criticize in the conventional reading of Jewish history and argues that Israel should be thought of not as a state for the Jewish people but as a territorial state much like others, with full rights for all its inhabitants." -Foreign Affairs... an extremely erudite, brilliant and powerful book with a novel approach: a sober secular conception of Judaism." -MaarivA provocative post-Zionist critique of the fundamental concepts of Jewish peoplehood, Zionism, and Israeli nationalism." -ChoiceThis compelling book conveys the reader straight to the frontline of thebattle raging in Israel over the proper boundaries of the nationalidentity. Evron's radical post-Zionist critique of Israel's conceptualfoundations calls in question the core link between Israel and Judaism andbetween Israel and the Jewish diaspora. His penetrating analysischallenges the muddled ideological bearings of Israel's publicself-images and points the way toward what may be a more realisticadaptation to its Middle Eastern environment." -Noah Lucas, Oxford Centre for Hebrew and Jewish StudiesBoas Evron is one of the most important and innovative contemporary Jewish-Israeli thinkers and writers.... For the English-speaking reader, Evron's book is a unique opportunity to understand the new secular Israeli nationalism, written by one of its most critical yet optimistic representatives." -Baruch Kimmerling, The Hebrew
