<< Overall RL Index Sources >>


This list is based primarily on sources obtained during a course on Zionism taught by Dr. Deborah Lipstadt at UCLA in the early 1980s (alas, she has since moved on from UCLA onto bigger and better things), as well as the "70 books about Israel 70" section in the Third Jewish Catalog. Other contributors include A. Engler Anderson, David A Guberman, Alon Kahana, Gary Kulwin, Reuven M. Lerner, Oren Levine, and Lewis Reich. Eric Simon provided addition entries during the Summer 2000 Remodeling. Suggestions for additions or deletions are welcome, as are brief annotations for the entries. I'm particularly looking for information on the various zionistic movements.
