For this book Professor Merkley has researched presidential archives, Jewish historical libraries and official Zionist records in the US and in Israel for evidence of the dealings between official Zionists and active Christian Restorationists. Much of this record appears here for the first time in print and is linked to the much better known history of the relationship between the official Zionists and the politicians and leaders of the US and Britain.

"Professor Merkley writes engagingly and the reader can feel that this is a subject which is close to the author"s heart. It is a valuable book which has much to say that will disabuse many readers of cherished illusions - especially false belief that President Roosevelt was sympathetic to the Zionist cause because of wholehearted Jewish support for his anti-Nazi policies … This is a warm and revealing book that deserves significant attention.
