In this book Ezra Mendelsohn presents a concise guide to the complexities of modern diaspora Jewish politics. He divides the various Jewish political parties and organizations into a number of schools or "camps," provides a geography of Jewish politics, and analyzes the results of the competition among the different camps for hegemony in the Jewish world. He pays particular attention to the United States and to Poland, homes to the two dominant Jewish communities in the interwar period. In addition, the book discusses the sources of appeal of such forces in Jewish politics as nationalism and the left, and compares Jewish politics with that of other minorities in Europe and America, including American blacks.
Beautifully illustrated with the work of prominent Jewish artists, and based on a wide variety of sources, including literary material, On Modern Jewish Politics provides a new perspective on a remarkable period in Jewish history.
