First Edition in English of the Collected Addresses of Dr
HERZL, Theodor. Congress Addresses of Theodor Herzl. Translated from the German by Nellie Straus. New York: Federation of American Zionists , 191.
"The collected addresses of Dr. Theodor Herzl are presented to readers of English for the first time. In these historic utterances will be found not only a presentation of Zionism as a solution of the Jewish Problem, but much more than that, the lineaments of a beloved personality who aroused the Jewish world." (From the Introduction by Saul J. Cohen).

"Theodor Herzl, (born May 2, 1860, Budapest, Hungary, Austrian Empire [now in Hungary]ódied July 3, 1904, Edlach, Austria), founder of the political form of Zionism, a movement to establish a Jewish homeland. His pamphlet The Jewish State (1896) proposed that the Jewish question was a political question to be settled by a world council of nations. He organized a world congress of Zionists that met in Basel, Switz., in August 1897 and became first president of the World Zionist Organization, established by the congress. Although Herzl died more than 40 years before the establishment of the State of Israel, he was an indefatigable organizer, propagandist, and diplomat who had much to do with making Zionism into a political movement of worldwide significance."
