KIRKUS REVIEW

Current events in Palestine give this reissue of writings that date back two generations a certain ironic timeliness. An introductory biographical essay, a portrait of Lazare by Charles Peguy, place him as one of the outstanding proponents for his own people, the Jews, at the time when anti-semitism in France was dramatized by the Dreyfus affair. There is one section of fragments left at his death; there are two lectures dealing with Jewish nationalism; there's an article contributed to a contemporary journal. Defined and limited audience.
