Synopsis

The two volumes of this work comprise the first

comprehensive history of the kibbutz movement in any language.







Origins

and Growth covers the first thirty years of this

fascinating story, from the formation of the kibbutz in the opening years of

the twentieth century to the eve of the Second World War. It is a masterly

analysis of the genesis and expansion of the kibbutzim and their relations with

the world around them. It considers not only the various components of the

kibbutz movement but also the pioneering youth movements from which their

members came.





Henry Near's analysis of the ideological,

political, economic, and social development of the kibbutz movement is

illustrated throughout by excerpts from historical sources, affording a wealth

of colourful insights into the changing quality of kibbutz life as experienced

by its members.











The second volume, Crisis and Achievement, 1939-1995 extends the detailed historical

analysis to 1977 and gives a comprehensive overview of subsequent developments.

Henry Near was Professor Emeritus in the Jewish History and Education Departments at Oranim Academic College and the University of Haifa and had been a member of Kibbutz Beit Ha'emek since 1955. He was the author of The Kibbutz and Society, 1923-1933 (1984), Studies in the Third Aliyah, 1919-1924 (with B. Ben-Avram, 1995), and Living in a Kibbutz (5th edition 1991). The prize-winning first volume of his history of the kibbutz movement appeared in 1992. He died in 2012.
