Bourne’s essay titled “the Jew and Transnational America” is a remarkable piece of work in the early twentieth century. It considers the then conceived problem of the diversity in America and the author’s attempt to weed out a possible solution. Bourne thus manages to compare the issue of Americanism with Zionism as a possible source of inspiration to solve America’s woes.
The author in his essay presents the situation in America which is comprised of diverse peoples migrating from Europe and those who can claim to have been a part of the formation of the country. The trends of nationalism as Bourne points out are the melting pot approach, which is aimed at the creation of one big homogenous collective, and the cooperation of cultures approach which is more in the tune of accepting cultural differences and forming a nationalism based on this diversity.
