Asher Ginsberg (1856-1927), also known as Ahad Ha-Am, was a prominent pre-state Zionist thinker and considered the founder of Cultural Zionism, fighting for what he described as "a Jewish state and not merely a state of Jews." This 1912 collection of essays, translated by Leon Simon, expresses his philosophy and beliefs on Zionism and other Jewish topics, helping the reader build an understanding of Ahad Ha-Am and his era.
