The Liberation of the Jew is a riveting, ruthless, self-analysis of the Jewish psyche. To be Jewish is to belong to a despised group, this is an axiom that is hardly touched upon in the book, and rightly so. Now GIVEN that you are universally despised what on earth could you do about it? Not much. You could accept that hate, pretend it doesn¿t exist, change your name, get a nose job, marry out, bury in, whatever. None tackles the tragic predicament ¿ you life is going to be crippled one way or another. Well, Memmi does offer something at the very end of the book. My suggestion is to read the whole book first. The diagnosis is far more interesting than the prescription.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
