The Future Of The Jews

By David Vital
Harvard University Press, 1990
160 pp. $18.95

A distinguished Israeli scholar reviews the history of the Jewish people and points out that, in the conditions of the modern world and with a Jewish nation-state in existence since 1948, the interests and outlook of the Jews of Israel and those of the diaspora have inevitably diverged. The latter, he contends, will become less and less relevant to the Jewish future. This is not a book on Middle East politics, but its arguments and conclusions have a bearing on the policies of Israel, the role of the American Jewish community and U.S.-Israeli relations.
