Chapter Summary

This is the introductory chapter of this book, which talks about the history of the Zionist cultural identity and repertoire and in particular the way they were evolved in Palestine during the first decades of the twentieth century. The book describes and analyzes the perceptions and actions of the leading officials and agents of the Palestine Office (PO) directed by Dr. Arthur Ruppin, and their impact on the culture planning of the Pre-Israeli or Modern Hebrew social field. The groups and the initial or partial repertoires (i.e., repertoires which were still in the planning stage and whose creators did not have enough statist capital) that were contested in the Zionist field in which the PO operated underwent a significant shift that resulted, to a large extent, from Ruppin's culture planning.

Keywords:Dr. Arthur Ruppin; Modern Hebrew social field; Palestine Office (PO)
