Summary expansion
Building new mythologies was a main project in the emergence of national movements in the modern era. The Zionist project was part of the modern enterprise, and it represented the Promethean passion of Western man; it sought to establish a political reality in the image of the new Jew.In this addition to the Modernism and...series, David Ohana provides a new perspective on nationalism in general and Zionism in particular. In addition to the view of Zionism as a political theology and a national ideology, this book presents Zionism as a modernist project and a political mythology by means of three myths: those of Zarathustra, Nimrod and Prometheus
