I want to recommend a new book I have just read: Adam Shatz, Prophets Outcast: A Century of Dissident Jewish Writing about Zionism and Israel. It is a great collection of important and "prophetic" essays, and even though I had read them before (as essays), it is great to have them all in one volume (like that great book Zionism Reconsidered). As I told Adam, only an essay by Maxime Rodinson is missing, and deserves to be in the book. The books is a lesson for Zionists and for anti-Semities alike: that Zionism does not speak for all Jews. (thanks for the book Adam).
