not yet rated|write a review
Rabbinic political thinking has a long and comparatively well documented history extending back to the biblical constitution in Deuteronomy. Though rabbinic political theory conventionally remains unrecognized by political scientists, the rise of religiously-based power in Israel demonstrates the effects of such theory when used to guide policy. In providing a rare systematic study of rabbinic political thinking--as well as a basis for study of how its underlying theory might apply to contemporary political areanas--The Judaic State proves to be valuable material to scholars of political philosophy, religion and society, and Jewish studies.

?Even thought many of the thinkers presented in this study differ widely in their styles, backgrounds and outlooks, and are separated in time by hundreds of years, they are skillfully tied together, making this work a readable and smooth narrative.?-Judaica Book News
