Library Journal - Library JournalHerberg was an important Jewish thinker, sociologist of religion, and political conservative who for many years wrote for the National Review . He is known today primarily for his 1955 classic Protestant-Catholic-Jew , which editor Dalin describes as ``a popular evocation of America's `triple melting pot' whose thesis has become a part of the sociological language of our time.'' In these collected essays, spanning four decades, he argues for increased religious identity and a greater role for religion in public life. His essays on Judaism are particularly thoughtful. Recommended for libraries with strong Judaica and religion collections.-- Paul Kaplan, Highland Park P.L., Ill.
