This review is from: The Controversy of Zion: Jewish Nationalism, the Jewish State, and the Unresolved Jewish Dilemma (Paperback)
This book is disappointing. Actually along these 400+ pages I found that all the crucial points of the Zionist ideology were omitted or downplayed.
Well, nothing much different from what the mainstream medias serve daily about this topic. But then, why calling this book "The ***Controversy*** of Zion", if the controversy is omitted ?
Actually I found this book so far away from what its title announces that I'm starting to wonder if Geoffrey Wheatcroft's "Controversy Of Zion" was published (1997) to divert the audience from the original "Controversy of Zion" written by Douglas Reed and published in 1955 that in contrast is deep, higly documented, and addresses extensively the fundamentally controversial aspects of the Zionist ideology.
As often, prefer the original to the copy.

That's exactly what I thought when I first saw this title being the same as that of Douglas Reed.

Very astute, Axel; one star, and a telling comparison which, to anyone who knows Douglas Reed's book, will understand exactly what this author has done. Thnx
