FIRST CONTACT: HALUTZIM FROM AMERICA: AMERICAN ZIONISM IN MANDATORY PALESTINE

by Dr. Matthew Silver 
(ISBN 0-938609-58-0)

This new publication probes the origins of the American Jewish-Israeli relationship. The author bases his findings on extensive research of organizational and personal archives. He argues that the "pioneering" impact of key American Zionist organizations and individuals on Israel was paradoxical and significant. Dr. Silver is the head of the General Studies department at the Max Stern College of Emek Yezreel. American-born, he has lived as an Israeli for over two decades and lives with his family in the Galilee. As a visiting professor in the United States, he has lectured widely and appeared frequently in American media, on the PBS Newshour and other outlets. His Ph.D. in Modern Jewish History was awarded by the Hebrew University of Jerusalem.

A LEGACY LOST
by Stanley E. Tobin
(ISBN 0-938609-94-7)

This book presents an analysis of post World War II political history, including Teddy Roosevelt's "vigorous" approaches, governmental adventure, and various colorful politicians who swarmed the national stage during much of the 20th Century. It recalls the campaigns and conventions of earlier times, leading to an exploration of how the system has been steadily eviscerated to the point of becoming a state of political inertia and decay.

From the reviews of A Legacy Lost...

“A natural storyteller with a keen wit, Stan Tobin dissects our political beast—and we are forced to give serious thought to the insights he lays open before us”

Charles T. Manatt
Democratic National Chairman (‘81-’85)

“Stan Tobin has embedded his erudite analysis of our political party history with a warmth that brings life to the process, and delight to his reader”

Charles Bakaly, Jr.
Former Member, Executive Committee,
California Republican Central Council
