I wish everything he envisioned had come to be. Hopefully some day it will. While the content of Old New Land Altneuland gives a fascinating look into Hertzl’s ideals for the development of a Jewish homeland, the Filiquarian edition makes reading continuity very difficult due to the tremendous amount of typographical errors. Often the typo does not interfere with the content of the text – modem for modern, or random periods throughout – but there are cases where the characters’ statements are incomprehensible due to the error.

Filiquarian Publishing, LLC offers no contact information on their website or within the book. Good must read book i got mine used although paid for new.

Old New Land – Wikisource, the free online library

This seminal novel from Herzl is unfortunately subject to numerous editing errors in this edition – there are punctuation, envlish, and formatting issues on nearly every page. I would give the book itself 4 stars, but this edition deserves aotneuland stars; the publishing company should be ashamed to put a book out in this condition.

The book gave a clear picture of Herzl’s utopian hopes. Late in life, Theodor Herzl wrote this book to explain his vision for a Jewish settlement in Palestine. He covered politics, religion, education, and social matters in great detail. For anyone interested in Zionism or the history of Israel, this is a must-read.

But Herzl was a frustrated or failed writer, and rather than write a straightforward tract, he wrote a novel — and a novel that is rather like a play. While the factual information conveyed is fascinating and Herzl was a political visionary, he wasn’t much of a writer.

As a result, the plot of Old-New Land is rather mediocre. The translation from German into English, done by Lotte Levensohn inis simply not very good. She used archaic or awkward expressions, even by the standards of The explanatory footnotes accompanying the the text are pathetic. They enhlish nothing to clarify unknown terms or relate forgotten historic items. Instead, they enthusiastically point alttneuland how technologically and socially advanced modern Israel is, making reference to Herzl’s proposals for the use of technology in Palestine.


It’s too bad that no publisher wants to issue a new, modern edition, and this is all the English-reading public has. Enblish stars for importance, three stars for plot, and one star for translation and editing. See all 14 reviews.
