NOAM ZADOFF is an assistant professor of Jewish studies and history at Indiana University.
Zadoff excels at explaining just how the course of events in Palestine disappointed Scholem's expectations. -- New York Review of Books Zadoff's deeply researched, carefully considered study of Scholem's ambivalent place between Zionism and the Germany of his youth will engage readers interested in better understanding the deep connection between the history of Zionism and the world of European thought and culture that Zionists could not leave entirely behind. . . . Highly recommended. -- Choice
