"Messianic themes have been employed with frequency and fervor by almost every political and religious movement in the modern Jewish world...This is the first time these fundamental issues have been subjected to such far-ranging scrutiny. The contributions from noted scholars examine themessianic idea in relation to such varied topics as ultra-Orthodox Judaism and its opposition to Zionism, the politics and poetry of the Yishuv, Christian millenarianism, Jewish theology in Weimar Germany, and the ideologies of Jewish socialist revolutionaries."--Book Briefings, A Supplement toMenorah Review
