An overview of the first steps of Zionism as authored by Max Nordau. His insight, as reflected in his writing, is still relevant today regarding many issues concerning Zionism, Anti-Semitism and historical analysis of the early 20th Century.
is a word that can hardly have remained quite strange to any educated person
following the more important movements of the time with some attention. As
generally known it denotes an intellectual tendency, which in recent years has
found numerous followers among the Jews of all countries, especially those in
the East. But comparatively few, among non-Jews or among Jews, have an
altogether clear conception of the aims and methods of Zionism: non-Jews,

to be informed of details from a primary source; Jews, because they are
purposely misled by the enemies of Zionism-by falsehoods and slanders-or because
even among loyal Zionists there are not many who have appreciated the full
intellectual import of Zionism and are disposed or able to give of it a clear
and comprehensible presentation without extravagance and polemic vehemence.
readers, I trust, have no preconceived opinion, but only an interest in being
reliably informed concerning a phenomenon of contemporary history. I shall

are distorted and falsified by calumniators.
