Jews and Power


Show Synopsis

It is Wisses bracing theory that the Jewish people have been corrupted--not by power but by powerlessness. She argues that in displaying the resilience necessary to survive in exile, the Jews left too much to God thereby increasing their vulnerability to scapegoating and violence.

An accessible history

Ruth Wisse has written a book small in size, but large in depth of historical information that's easy to read & absorb. I cannot recommend it highly enough.
To friends & family who ask me how Israel came to be, I'll send a copy of this book.
