Excerpt from Rome and Jerusalem: A Study in Jewish Nationalism I'r was Ruskin who 'divided all books into two classes: into books of the hour and books for all time. To the first belong the great majority of books; to the second, the few and chosen. To the latter belongs Rome and Jerusalem. It is as timely to - day as it was fifty-six years ago, when it first saw the light of day; and, in a sense, even more timely, for Rome and Jerusalem belongs to the very few books which are written in advance of their time.
