Can someone help me with finding sources (ie, things to read) about my research topic of "How the Revival of the Hebrew Language Led to Jewish Nationalism"

This question appears to be off-topic. The users who voted to close gave this specific reason:

There is a relatively new book called Resurrecting Hebrew, by Ilan Stavans, which I think will be helpful.
Interestingly, Eliezer ben Yehudah, who was involved in the creation of modern Hebrew as a spoken language, was from a Lubavitcher background.
For starters, try the sections about Ben Yehuda, Bar Ilan, Achad Ha'am, and friends in The Zionist Idea.
