Riassunto: The Emergence of Modern Jewish Politics examines the political, social, and cultural dimensions of Zionism and Bundism, the two major political movements among East European Jews during the first half of the twentieth century.

While Zionism achieved its primary aim—the founding of a Jewish state—the Jewish Labor Bund has not only practically disappeared, but its ideals of socialism and secular Jewishness based in the diaspora seem to have failed. Yet, as Zvi Gitelman and the various contributors argue, it was the Bund that more profoundly changed the structure of Jewish society, politics, and culture.

In thirteen essays, prominent historians, political scientists, and professors of literature discuss the cultural and political contexts of these movements, their impact on Jewish life, and the reasons for the Bund?s demise, and they question whether ethnic minorities are best served by highly ideological or  solidly pragmatic movements.

Dal risvolto interno: The Emergence of Modern Jewish Politics analyzes the changes in Jewish political life wrought by Zionism and Bundism, and explores the relationship between politics, culture, and society among the Jews of Eastern Europe in the first half of the twentieth century.

The essays collected by Zvi Gitelman view modern Jewish politics through wide and varying lenses. Gitelman examines the legacy of the Bund and Zionist movements, and contends that Bundism's contributions-though less obvious-profoundly changed the structure of the society, politics, and culture of Jews in Eastern Europe and abroad. Other aspects of Jewish politics are highlighted as well, including alternative political movements of emancipation and integration and the role of national minorities and women in politics.

The volume also stresses the interactive nature of politics and culture, exploring the relationship between the political movements and Hebrew and Yiddish languages, literature, and art forms. While the Bund experienced a tenuous and distanced relationship with Yiddish culture, Zionism was supported and buoyed by the more politicized Hebrew writings and works of art. Finally, both Bundism and Zionism are tracked as immigrants from Eastern Europe brought the movements across the Atlantic Ocean to American Jewish communities and to the chaotic community of post-World War II France.

While contributors to The Emergence of Modern Jewish Politics debate the ultimate success and failure of the various parties and the appropriateness of their tactics, inevitably most examine such issues through the prism of the Holocaust, which effectively terminated East European Jewish politics. These essays also raise the issue of whether ethnic minorities are best served by highly ideological or highly pragmatic political movements in trying to defend their interests in nondemocratic, multiethnic states.
