  • The Invention of the Jewish People by Shlomo Sand
    The Invention of the Jewish People (English, Paperback) Shlomo Sand

    Shows that the Israeli national myth has its origins in the 19th century, rather than in biblical times when Jewish historians, like scholars in many other cultures, reconstituted an imagined people in order to model a future nation. This book demonstrates the construction of a nationalist myth and the collective mystification that this requires.
