Rhetoric and Nation The Formation of Hebrew National Culture, 1880–1990

In Rhetoric and Nation: The Formation of Hebrew National Culture, 1880–1990 Professor Ginsburg considers a wide range of texts of literature, criticism, and politics, while exploring the way each text manifests its own singular logic, which cannot be subsumed under any single ideology. Through close readings of key canonical texts, Rhetoric and Nation demonstrates that the Hebrew discourse of the nation should not be conceived as coherent and cohesive but, rather, as an assemblage of singular, disparate moments.

Shai Ginsburg is Assistant Professor of Hebrew and Israeli Cultural Studies, Jewish Studies and Arts of the Moving Image at Duke University.
