Letters to my Israeli sons

£14.99

Product description

This is a book about a search, the search of an idea for its rightful home. Writing for her three teenage sons,Lynne Reid Banks traces the history of a fundamental idea, that of Jewishness- which has outlived all the world's attempts to deprive it of its roots in nationhood. With sympathy and insight, she tells the story of the survival of a people who retained their identity for thousands of years while scattered throughout the world. Lynne Reid Banks argues that with out a territory there can be no nationhood, and that without nationhood persecuted people can find no self respect and no true dignity. In this book she follows the wanderings of the Jews from their earliest dispersion in Biblical times through recurrent oppression and isolation to the founding of the ]ewish state in 1948. She examines the origins of Zionism and the gathering movement of return to Israel, and tells the story of the first settlements and their heroic struggles for survival.
