This book traces attempts of Jewish jurists-nationalists to establish a nonreligious system of Hebrew Courts in British-ruled Palestine. The book analyzes the secular, national and anticolonial ideology of the Hebrew Law of Peace and shows that Jewish religious groups, secular lawyers and leading Zionist institutions undermined the Hebrew Law project. The book explores the reluctance of leading Zionists to allow communities, rather than organized quasi-state institutions, to define the trajectory of Jewish nationalism.
