Born in Germany, receiving a Jewish education, Hess goes on to become one of the leaders of the German socialist movement. However, later in his life (1875-1812), inspired by the emergence of nationalism, he returns to his Jewish roots and promotes the idea of liberating Jerusalem and the resettlement of Jews in Judea. He wrote his book three decades before Herzl organized the first Zionist Congress in 1897.
