Judenstaat. Versuch einer modernen Lösung der Judenfrage. (Jewish State. An attempt at a modern solution of the Jewish Question.)
The most important book in modern Jewish history: Herzl's "The Jewish State, An Attempt at a Modern Solution of the Jewish Question" is an epochal call for the establishment of a Jewish State as a national home for the Jewish people. Herzl's position stood in opposition to the two prevailing attitudes of his day: assimilation and isolationism.
"While in Paris Herzl was deeply influenced by the Dreyfus case and the effects of the pogroms in Russia during the eighties. He came to the conclusion that any new relationship between the Jews and other peoples could be established only if the Jews organized themselves and acted as a people. It was Herzl's book which really crystallized the idea of a national home for the Jews. Two conceptions had prevailed hitherto: either that of the ghetto, presupposing an unbridgeable gulf between Jews and Gentiles, or that of assimilation, which meant a complete acceptance by the Jews of their environment leading eventually to their becoming part of the people among whom they lived. Herzl took a different view. By his work he transformed the Jewish people from a passive community into a positive political force. In consequence of the publication of his book, a congress was held at Basle in 1897 attended by 206 delegates from all parts of the world and here the Zionist organization was founded. [Herzl served as the first president of the World Zionist Organization.] The movement became world-wide. That a Jewish State was created in Palestine within 50 years of his death was due to the vision and the practical methods of Herzl, expressed in his manifesto of 1896" (PMM 381).
