LIKE ALL THE NATIONS?
1st edition. Original Paper Wrappers, 8vo, 77 pages. "'Can we establish our life here,' he asked in his 1930 pamphlet Like All the Nation? 'not upon the basis of force and power, but upon that of human solidarity and understanding?' His tireless pursuit of a cooperative relationship between Jews and Arabs was a manifestation of his philosophy of life; his effort on behalf of the binational plan stands as one in a series of efforts by him to change Jewish public life in both American and Mandatory Palestine" (Kotzin, 2010). In this pamphlet, Magnes includes his essay with the pamphlet's title, as well as his recent New York Times article and Philby's plan. He also republishes his 1921 letter to the editor of the London Jewish Chronicle in which he claims that redemption would come to the Jews only if they stop infringing on Arab national aspirations in Palestine. He placed this article in the pamphlet, he says, "to show that my present attitude is not new, and that it is the result of a view of life and a conception of the ethical function of Judaism and does not just spring from tactical or strategic motives." Finally, he also includes an English translation of Ahad Ha-Am's 1921 Preface to a new edition of his works. Important. Light wear & stains to cover, Very Good Condition. (zion-9-1) xx.
