Shlomo Sand: Invention of the Land of Israel
Following his acclaimed book The Invention of the Jewish People, Shlomo Sand’s latest book The Invention of the Land of Israel deconstructs the age-old legends surrounding the Holy Land, dissects the concept of ‘historical right’, and tracks the creation of the modern geopolitical concept of the ‘Land of Israel’ by nineteenth-century Evangelical Protestants and Jewish Zionists.
