Editorial Reviews

Review

Deconstructing Zionism is admirable for the revealing light through which it re-reads a phenomenon that, as the book's title aptly suggests, exemplifies the seemingly inextricability of politics from metaphysics” ―Andrew M. Wender, JD, PhD, University of Victoria, Middle East Media and Book Reviews Online

Format: Paperback
This is a collection of over theoretical (rather than realistic or pragmatic) one sided essays all written by militants known for their anti-Zionist stand and anti anything to do with tiny Israel.
It would have been more serious and scholar-like (that is the advancing and developing of a subject) to include counter analysis or at least more varied and especially balanced views/analysis. Instead it's a simple militant attempt to discredit, rather than Philosophy per se. Is this book a personal expression of hatred (the author saying recently he would "like to shoot all zionists") under cover of a 'philosophy'? Regretful waste of time.

Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
The unevenness of the contributions in this anthology reinforces a sense of political disarray and uncertainty that is itself sometimes treated as a kind of model for a non-imperialist, non-nationalist, etc., worldview. The least impressive contributions, including the two book-ending the collection, by two of its best-known writers, are the ones that seem more intent in constructing anti-Zionisms or simply in exploiting the topic for ancillary emotional, polemical, and other purposes, but the better work, even when it only loosely embodies any recognizably "deconstructive" approach to the nominal subject matter, makes for an excellent survey of contemporary, in general radically anti-Zionist or would-be post-Zionist thought.
