Probing A Nation’s Psyche

The Question of Zion


Princeton University Press 187pp £12.95 order from our bookshop

Jacqueline Rose is a formidable scholar who has applied her deep practical understanding of psychoanalysis to explorations of English literature, and she now turns that understanding on Zionism. She approaches the subject ‘as a Jewish woman’ who has been ‘appalled at what the Israeli nation perpetrated in my name’. She fears that Zionism is doing damage to the Jewish world, the Palestinian Arabs, and ultimately to Israel itself.
