Ours is an age that aches for justice. Growing disparities of wealth, continuing marginalization of people by ethnicity, faith, gender, and ability, propensity to use violence and power to impose control--these and other blights assault our ability to thrive as human beings on this planet. Fortunately, we have a consummate academic, passionate prophet, and wise sage in Aryeh Cohen, who musters the resources of Jewish tradition as tools for clearer analysis and effective engaement. This is a great book by a master scholar and community activist. --Rabbi Bradley Shavit Artson, Ziegler School of Rabbinic Studies, American Jewish University

America was the most egalitarian Western developed nation in 1970. Now we are the least egalitarian of all. The basic equality that helps people feel that we are all in it together is disappearing in the new America which qualifies as best democracy money can buy. Cohen's book speaks to all the millions of every faith and all the non-believers who live in US cities. It shows us a better way to enjoy our shared lives. The struggle to enjoy those better lives is worth it. Read this book and be inspired!
