505 0  Introduction: banal murder and toponomy -- Making 
       homelands: biological imperative or national property -- 
       Mytherritory: in the beginning, God promised the land -- 
       Toward a Christian Zionism: and Balfour promised the land 
       -- Zionism versus Judaism: the conquest of "ethnic" space 
       -- Conclusion: the sad tale of the frog and the scorpion -
       - Afterword: in memory of a village. 
520    What is a homeland? When does it become a national 
       territory? Why have so many people been willing to die for
       such places throughout the twentieth century? What is the 
       essence of the Promised Land? Following the acclaimed and 
       controversial The Invention of the Jewish People, Shlomo 
       Sand examines the mysterious sacred land that has become 
       the site of the longest-running national struggle of the 
       twentieth and twenty-first centuries. The Invention of the
       Land of Israel deconstructs the age-old legends 
       surrounding the Holy Land and the prejudices that continue
       to suffocate it. Sand's account dissects the concept of 
       "historical right" and tracks the creation of the modern 
       concept of the "Land of Israel" by nineteenth-century 
       Evangelical Protestants and Jewish Zionists. This 
       invention, he argues, not only facilitated the 
       colonization of the Middle East and the establishment of 
       the State of Israel, it is also what is threatening the 
       existence of the Jewish state today.--From publisher
