In his new book, Israel's Moment (Cambridge University Press, 2022) Jeffrey Herf examines the political realities that underpinned opposition to and support for Zionist aspirations in Palestine and the roles governments in the United States, Europe, and the Soviet bloc played. In an unprecedented international account, Herf investigates the opposition of diplomatic and military leadership of the United States and Britain, and the reservations of the French Foreign Ministry, as well as support from American liberals, Socialists in the French Interior Ministry, leading figures of the French Communist Party, and the Communist governments of the Soviet Union, Poland and Czechoslovakia. In the process, Herf recalls that the meaning of keywords such as imperialism and anti-imperialism, and fascism and anti-fascism differed significantly from what they became in subsequent decades.
