[At the Crossroads]
Ed. by Wiese, Christian
Aims and Scope
The new edition of Achad Ha’am’s Am Scheidewege [At the Crossroads] makes essays published by the founder of Cultural Zionism in 1923 accessible again for the first time. In these works the author sets out his view of Jewish identity and, in debate with the political Zionism of Theodor Herzl, advocates a Jewish nationalism that focuses above all on the cultural renewal of Judaism in Europe. An introduction and commentary by the editor Christian Wiese explain the significance of these writings which are crucial to Jewish self-conception in the modern age.
