Evolution of the Revolution
Israel is home to one of the most successful socialist societies ever to have been created. The Kibbutz began as a venture to bring into fruition the ideas of labor Zionism, the movement to bring Jews back to the land. AD Gordon, a prominent Labor Zionist said, The Jewish people has been completely cut off from nature and imprisoned within city walls for two thousand years. We lack the principal ingredient for national life. We lack the habit of labor for it is labor which binds a people to its soil and to its national culture.
Rather than remain stagnant, the revolution that is the Kibbutz has continually changed and morphed over the past century. Evolution of the Revolution is our understanding of the changing atmosphere of the kibbutz and the larger implications for the kibbutznicks.
