Shlomo Avineri on Theodor Herzl

Shlomo Avineri

The first biography of the father of modern political Zionism in 35 years tells the story of the Austrian journalist who made the idea of a Jewish state his life project.

Shlomo Avineri comes from Jerusalem to discuss the life and vision of Theodor Herzl, a daydreamer whose vision changed the Middle East - and world politics - forever. 

Shlomo Avineri, one of Israel's leading public intellectuals, teaches at the Hebrew University and is a member of the Israel Academy of Sciences and Humanities. He served as Director-General of Israel's Foreign Ministry, and is the recipient of the Israel Prize. His books on Hegel, Marx and Zionism have been translated into many languages.
