Language in Time of Revolution

Benjamin Harshav

University of California Press

For various reasons—such as the industrialization of the Soviet Union, which was rapid and more enticing than the early industrialization of Israel; enforced “internationalization” of the Jewish Kolkhozes in Russia; assimilation and urbanization in the West; higher education which the second generation everywhere was devoted to; and, finally, the Holocaust—most of the other agricultural attempts eventually disappeared, while Israeli agriculture survived and is one of the finest achievements of the Jewish State. Yet if one looks not from the end of a historical trend but from its beginning, it was one centrifugal movement with similar ideals realized in different directions and countries. This centrifugal movement, in which New York and Eretz-Israel may be seen as extensions of the Jewish fermentation in Russia, has been described in detail by Jonathan Frankel in his classic study Prophecy and Politics.

Keywords:   industrialization, Soviet Union, internationalization, Jewish, Kolkhozes, assimilation, urbanization, centrifugal movement, Eretz, Israel
