The Unknown Essays of Vladimir Jabotinsky (Research Note) by Louis Gordon
April 20, 1997
While most of Vladimir Jabotinsky's articles have been published in various volumes of collected writings and have thus been available to scholars for years, a number of his essays remain unknown to both scholars as well as his disciples. This is largely due to the fact that the Revisionist party's archives were destroyed during the bombing of London, but also because of the wide range of publications in which Jabotinsky published. This article introduces four recently discovered essays, "Self-Administration for Palestine" (1920), "The Justice of the Jewish Claim" (1921), "Shall the Jewish Middleman be Spared" (1930), and "The Jewish Mission, the Religious Ideals of the Jew and of the Aryan Compared" (1923), and discusses how they add to our understanding of Jabotinsky as well as their continued relevance for our own era."
