Zionism and Religion


Shmuel Almog, Jehuda Reinharz and Anita Shapira, eds.

zionism and religionThe relationship between nationalism and religion has often been characterized by antagonism and antipathy. In this anthology, 20 scholars from Israel and the US examine from various perspectives — history, sociology, theology, law, political science — the complex nexus within Judaism of these two sources of repeated ideological and political dispute.

“The authors are without exception leading authorities in their respective fields. The subject is of great and growing importance . . . arguably the most important challenge facing Israel and Jews at the present time.”

— Walter Laqueur
