Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
In this first book of a four-volume series originating from a conference on Jewish philosophy, religion, and politics sponsored by the Shalom Harman Institute of Jerusalem, the political arguments of two millennia are made accessible to a new generation of general readers. The struggle between secular and religious authority and the interaction of the individual in society are central themes. The editors, all scholars affiliated with the Shalom Hartman Institute, arrange this anthology of texts with commentaries in chronological order under 30 chapters headings, centering upon key historical events from ancient times unto the modern State of Israel. Primary sources (the Talmud, Mishnah, Midrash, Gemara, etc.) are supplemented by legal responsa, extracanonical, and contemporary sources, including essays, articles, and pamphlets by eminent scholars and professionals working in different fields of Jewish studies. Many of the medieval and modern texts are translated into English for the first time. Biographical data on various authors are included. This highly comprehensive and scholarly work is recommended for academic libraries.--Michael W. Ellis, Ellenville P.L., NY Copyright 2000 Cahners Business Information.\

The Jewish Political Tradition is one of the most ambitious Jewish intellectual efforts of recent years.
