Book III of Theodor Herzl's 1902 classic Altneuland (Old New Land), as read by Ben Bresky.

A Zionist Jew, a Christian American, an assimilated European Jew and a Moslem Arab are in a car together travelling through the land of Israel. It's all part of the latest chapter in the saga of Altneuland. Find out what David Littwak has been doing for the past 20 years while Frederich and Kingscourt have been on the island. Will the citizens of Neudorf vote for Dr. Geyer's so-called "racist" political party in the elections? How did they develop a high-tech light rail? What was the reaction of the Christian minority to the return of the Jewish majority to the land? And what does David's good buddy Rechid Bey have to say about the Zionist movement? Find out in this 1902 classic where some things sound strangely familiar to today's news headlines.
