Quote:
Anarchism and the national question. Anarcho-zionism.
Anarchism in Israel. “Problemot/Problemen”.

These two would be interesting. For sure, there's I doubt there's anything of meat on "Problemen" in english. Dolgoff mentions them in "Fragments". We have a few old copies and a book or two published by them. But a history, naw, I don't think exists in english. That would be interesting.

"Anarchism and the national question. Anarcho-zionism" would be of general interest.

Yes, but repeating what was said before, there are more things to translate than people doing this work.

I have a friend who has started to translate some interesting Yiddish things into German. So, things are getting translated, just not necessarily into English. smile

Actually, I wasn't requesting immediate translation.... sorta something for the "wish list". But if stuff gets translated in German, French or Spanish, I can read it (sorta, kinda). But Russian, out of my league.

Being a rather boring person, I finally had a chance to read the chapters I've skipped previously while on vacation. From the TMI department, I read while kids took full advantage of ocean.

While I don't agree with certain of the author's perspectives, I must say that this is a throughly interesting account of the IWA.
