    This book by Israeli intellectual Gilad Atzmon is an exposé of Jewish identity politics and Jewish contemporary ideology. Jewish identity is tied up with some of the most difficult and contentious issues of today. The purpose of this book is to open many of these issues up for discussion.

    Since Israel defines itself as the “Jewish State,” we should ask what the notions of “Judaism,” “Jewishness,” “Jewish culture” and “Jewish ideology” stand for. Atzmon examines the tribal aspects embedded in Jewish secular discourse, both Zionist and anti-Zionist; the “holocaust religion;” the meaning of “history” and “time” within the Jewish political discourse; and the anti-Gentile ideologies of secular Judaism. He questions what it is that leads Diaspora Jews to identify themselves with Israel and affiliate with its politics.

    The devastating state of our world affairs raises an immediate demand for a conceptual shift in our intellectual and philosophical attitude towards politics, identity politics and history.
