- Customer Reviews:
"A fast-paced and unflinching history from a master writer. Ryvchin brilliantly chronicles the unbreakable 3,000-year-old bond between the Jewish people and the land of Zion and tells the story powerfully and definitively. A wonderful contribution to Jewish history."
-Senator Linda Frum
"Alex Ryvchin has written a clear, readable chronicle of Zionism that skillfully places the case for Israel in its true historical context."
- John Howard OM AC, Former Prime Minister of Australia
Alex Ryvchin is the co-Chief Executive Officer of the Executive Council of Australian Jewry and is a writer, speaker and commentator on the Arab-Israeli conflict, international affairs, antisemitism and the Holocaust, and religion and identity. His first book is the internationally acclaimed, The Anti-Israel Agenda - Inside the Political War on the Jewish State.
"The clarity of Ryvchin's storytelling captures the essence of Zionism and explains the Jewish desire to return home in a manner that will fascinate, educate and inspire."
Isaac Herzog, Chairman of the Jewish Agency
"This important book should be read by all Zionists who need intellectual and historical ammunition to fight against anti-Zionists and by all who question Zionism out of ignorance or misguided political correctness."
"Alex Ryvchin's modern, scholarly, eminently readable, and fair history of Zionism is so important. It should persuade any objective reader of the decency and even nobility of the world's oldest national movement, Zionism. Anyone who wants to understand Zionism should begin here.
"A must-read for anyone wishing to understand a movement that has somehow become a dirty word. It not only expertly charts the history of Zionism, but demonstrates why its counter movement is steeped in antisemitism. This book is brilliant."
Caroline Marcus, Sky News
"A compelling and contextualized history of the ancient idea that became one of the most successful revolutions of modern times."
Steve Ganot, Israel Hayom
"In our time, someone like Alex Ryvchin shouldn't be possible. His is a narrative voice that is at once searingly truthful, self-critical, inflected with moments of unspeakable tenderness, bordering on poetry, and blessedly free of the acrimony that pollutes so many sites of public disagreement. Few other voices could have told the story of Zionism that he tells here: in part, an account of the egregious inhospitality that has greeted Jews throughout the world, an historical 'never-at-home-ness' that made their diabolical displacement in the Shoah possible; in part, a testimony of unfailing hopefulness and political genius, animated by Ryvchin's distinctive moral energy that never descends into cant or hagiographic naïveté."
Scott Stephens, ABC
