Julius Haber's `Shaef of Zionist
History' is Rich. in Historical Data
Julius Haber is a Zionist of
long standing. He has been ac-
tive in the movement for sev-
eral decades and has been
among the staunchest support-
ers of every cause that aids Is-
He has authored two books
on Zionism, "The Unpaid Debt
of American Jewry to Its Breth-
ren" and "The Odyssey of an
His third volume, just issued
by Waldon Press, is entitled "A
Sheaf of Zionist History."
• It is a personal document. It
contains a collection of articles
he has written, of letters he has
controversies that existed with-
in and outside the movement,
on some personality issues but
primarily on the ideologies of
the libertarian cause.
In many respects, this volume
is a history both of the Amer-
ican and world Zionist move-
ment. The personality sketches
authored by Haber—of Herzl,
Nordau, Sokolow and others;
the articles on Magnes and on
institutions in Zionism; the
story of Cyrus L. Sulzberger's
"conversion" to Zionism by
Herzl and the exchange of let-
ters by Haben and Sulzberger's
son, Arthur Hays Sulzberger,
the publisher of the New York
Times, are as interesting as
Zionist literature today as when
they were first published.
