Community and Polity: The Organizational Dynamics of American Jewry (Jewish Communal & Public Affairs) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

An update and revision of the original 1976 edition. This study presents a two-fold discussion: a basic survey of the structure and functions of the American Jewish community, and a suggestion as to how that community should be understood as a body politic, a collective unit that is not a state but is no less real from a political perspective.

Book News Annotation:

Analyzes the developments in the American Jewish community through the postwar generation to the present, surveying the structure and functions of the community and suggesting that it should be understood as a body politic. Addresses topics such as assimilation, adaptation to American life, and religious and educational community activity. This revised addition looks at the impact of demographic shifts on community organization and the institutionalization of new relationships between the American Jewish community and Israel.
