Homeland or Holy Land? is the study of a man and a movement -- the man is Yonatan Ratosh, Hebrew poet and thinker, and the movement is Zionism, the ideological foundation of the Jewish state, Israel.

Important and provocative reading for anyone interested, concerned, or confused by the state of the state of Israel today.
