This chapter reviews the book Zionism without Zion: The Jewish Territorial Organization and Its Conflict with the Zionist Organization (2016), by Gur Alroey. In Zionism without Zion, Alroey examines the movement that became Zionism’s fiercest rival—Territorialism—and how it ultimately lost the ideological contest concerning the location of the future Jewish state. Zionism and Territorialism shared the same precursors, and their proponents held a similar worldview with regard to the urgency of providing a refuge for Jews. In contrast, there were those who called for integration of the Jews into the various countries in which they already lived. This group was divided into two, one of which included Communists and Bundists. There was also a “cultural” stream in the Zionist Organization, which was led by Ahad Ha’am. According to Alroey, Ahad Ha’am sought to resolve the problem of Jewish religion in Palestine.
