Summary
"Set in the first decade of modern Israel's existence, Zvi Ganin's study illuminates a pivotal chapter in American Zionist history and an evolving dynamic between American Jews and Israel. Ganin offers an insightful look at the changing relationship of American Jews and the reborn Jewish nation/state. It is one of the first in-depth analyses of the subject during this key period." "Tapping into private correspondence, diaries, oral history, scholarly literature, and other archival materials, Ganin provides a detailed look at motivations, passions, and attitudes of Jewish and Israeli leaders on numerous issues - none more affecting than in the stormy debate over dual loyalty."--BOOK JACKET
