Critical Acclaim for The Zionist Ideas

The Zionist Ideas is a must-read, a comprehensive Zionist Bible for the twenty-first century.

Irwin Cotler, former minister
of justice and attorney general
of Canada

 Embracing the diversity of views about an ideology come to life, Troy offers clues to Zionism’s next chapters as Israel matures, struggles, and strives to keep faith with its founders’ vision.

The Zionist Ideas clarifies the wealth of rich ideas regarding the Jewish people’s sovereign national home in the land of Israel.

Daniel B. Shapiro, former U.S. ambassador to the State of Israel 

Ruth Calderon,
Member of Knesset and Author
