Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Gadfly civil libertarian Dershowitz pens a perspicacious, anecdotal account of the responsibilities and difficulties associated with Jewishness today. In hardcover, this BOMC alternate spent 22 weeks on PW 's bestseller list and attained the number-one position. Photos. Author tour. May
Library Journal
Leo Rosten, in his The Joys of Yiddish LJ 10/1/68, defines chutzpah as ``gall, brazen nerve, effrontery, incredible `guts,' presumption plus arrogance such as no other word and no other language can do justice to.'' Dershowitz Reversal of Fortune , LJ 4/1/86 , perhaps the most famous lawyer in the United States today, argues here that U.S. Jewry should shed its second-class citizenship syndrome and show a little chutzpah in defining its relationship with gentile, Christian America. He pleads that U.S. Jews have nothing to be ashamed of, since they have made vital contributions to the nation and deserve the same rights and privileges as their gentile compatriots. His thesis ranges through a spectrum of fascinating essays about anti-Semitism on college campuses, the state of Israel, the Holocaust, Auschwitz, the Jewish religion, and church/state relations. Brilliant, provocative, controversial, and as ``chutzpadik'' as its author, this book should have a wide audience and is enthusiastically recommended for public library collections. Previewed in Prepub Alert, LJ 1/91.-- Robert A. Silver, Shaker Heights P.L., Ohio
