Editorial Reviews

Review

"The Jewish Political Tradition is remarkable for both what it does and how it does it. It is a splendid achievement. When Jews call themselves the people of the book, this is the sort of book they have, or at least ought to have, in mind." Noah J. Efron, Boston Book Review

1 of 1 people found the following review helpful By israelmaven on December 11, 2007
Format: Paperback
This book is a collaboration of two dozen very smart scholars -- mainly philosophers, lawyers and political scientists -- who mined the Jewish tradition for writings on the question of membership. It is a wonderful resource for exploring the nature of the perennial "who is a Jew" question as well as questions about conversion, gender inequality and heresy. The most politically relevant section is the final one, which looks at Jews' relationship with gentiles and closes with a fascinating review of sources considering the status of non-Jews in the State of Israel.

The book's selections are well-chosen and well-edited, though some seem cut a bit too short (inevitable, I suppose, in such a wide-ranging compendium). The interpretive essays on each reading are gems of insight that will keep you thinking and talking. The Jewish Political Tradition would be a wonderful book for discussion in an adult Jewish education class.
