Carr notes that "Rhetoric and Nation skillfully reframes scholarly assessment of Hebrew discourse of the nation in new genres, politics, and meanings. Ginsburg’s careful study shows how we can talk about modern Hebrew discourse of the nation without collapsing that discourse with Zionism or treating Hebrew discourse of the nation as an unfragmented, monolithic body of literature."
