This is a timely book of really great importance which convincingly situates the roots of the antagonism of the Left towards Israel and Zionism in a distaste for ideas such as Zionism which did not easily slide into conventional theoretical frameworks as well as confusion between colonialism and colonisation. Indispensable reading for anyone who wishes to fully comprehend Israel's place in the world of today." --Professor Tudor Parfitt, University of London, UK
