Book Description:
New Introduction by Jacques Kornberg Old New Land forever altered the face of the Middle East. The book was a nineteenth century utopian blueprint for a modern state of Israel. There were Jewish settlers in Palestine, and Zionist ideas had existed in Eastern Europe before Herzl, but Herzl made Zionism into a cultural and political movement acceptable to Western governments and intellectuals. His prophecy at the end of this book became reality: 'If you will it, it is not a fable.' The author, founder of the Zionist movement, considered this utopian story his best literary work: an expression of his art, with a political message. His biographer, Amos Elon, placed Old New Land 'in the mainstream of fin de siecle art. Its pursuit of arcadian bliss within a mystic community and its haunted preoccupation with dreams recall Gustav Mahler's music.'
