Babel in Zion

Yale University Press

This concluding chapter discusses the place of Babel in Zion. It shows that the three linguistic pressures of the pre-1948 period—Arabic, German, and English—were increasingly powerful as symbols of specific cultural developments. It also reveals that languages could be symbols to be applauded, defended, or excoriated as well as tools for accomplishing real communication objectives.

Keywords:   Babel, Zion, Arabic, German, English
