    1 thought on “The Israelis: Founders and Sons

    1. The first half of the book is a very good look at the early history of modern The second half describes the author s opinion of Israel now , only now was nearly 50 years ago I recommend reading just the first half The second half may be useful if you re doing research on opinions of Israel between the 1967 and Yom Kippur wars, but it s not necessary for the modern reader.

    2. Amos Elon might have written the The Israelis Founders and Sons, almost 40 years ago, but the majority of his observations and insights are still highly relevant today He didn t set out to write the definitive historical account of Zionism, but if he set out to write the definitive intellectual treatment of Zionist history, he succeeded This book is a classic for good reason One of the most interesting threads that weaves through the book is the notion that the Arabs inadvertently helped facilit [...]

    3. I learned a huge amount from this classic even though enormous transformations have taken place in the one or two generations since it was written The bulk of the book in emotional weight and perhaps in page count concerns the early immigrants and events leading up to the founding of the state Although the book gives short shrift to the experiences of Arabs after the founding of the state and to the non Ashkenazic immigrants, it has plenty to compensate, looking at technical, social, spiritual, [...]

    4. Beautifully written history of the development of political Zionism, the first waves of Zionist settlement in Palestine, the founding of Israel, leading up to the 1967 war.

    5. the second section is dated, not relevant today it expresses the society as it was apprehended in the 70s.

    6. I learned much about the establishment of Israel, who came and from where, when they arrived and when and where land purchased and sites established.
