A major new history of the century-long debate over what a Jewish
state should be Many Zionists who advocated for the creation of a
Jewish state envisioned a nation like any other. Yet for Israel's
founders, the nation that emerged against all odds in 1948 was
anything but ordinary. Born from the ashes of genocide and a long
history of suffering, Israel was conceived to be unique, a model
society and the heart of a prosperous new Middle East. It is this
paradox, says historian Michael Brenner-the Jewish people's wish
for a homeland both normal and exceptional-that shapes Israel's
ongoing struggle to define itself and secure a place among nations.
In Search of Israel is a major new history of this struggle from
the late nineteenth century to our time.
