Hmm …

… Adam Kirsch Reviews Reza Aslan's Powerful Biography of Jesus, 'Zealot' – Tablet Magazine. (Hat tip, Dave Lull.)

This sounds like a pretty unoriginal idea to me. Perhaps it is better researched and reasoned, but it is certainly not the first book to advance to notion of Jesus as revolutionary.
As to the business Zealots didn't emerge until 66 AD, what about the postle who is referred to as Simon the Zealot.

More on Reza Aslan here: Reza Aslan, a Media Martyr and a Bully. (Also from Dave.)
