Following on from the examination of how British Jews related to the Zionist project in the Middle East in Part II and the Zionist transformation of British Jewry in Part III, Part IV probes how the participation of British Jews in Zionist state- and nation-building related to the fabric of British state and society. The impact of Zionism on the modes of Jewish integration into British state and society will be explored in two case studies: the presentation of the Zionist case in British parliamentary politics and the place of Zionism in the English educational landscape. The interaction of Zionism with British state and society is discussed against the background of specific features of the British constitution and of the British-Jewish condition: a nation-state conditioned by premodern features and the presence of Empire, the specific terms of Jewish emancipation in Britain, and Britain’s assumption of the Mandate for Palestine.

Keywords:   premodern foundations, Empire, nation-state, Jewish emancipation as co-optation, the British Mandate for Palestine, parliamentary politics, English educational system
