Jews and Power Book Review

There is a myth that the overall Jewish community hold some sort of secret control over the world.

In 2007, writer and Professor Ruth R. Wisse corrected that fallacy in Jews and Power. In the book, Professor Wisse examines both the historical and religious aspects of Judaism as it reflects on military and political power. She also talks about modern day Israel and how her leaders are able to balance both democracy and security.

Needless to say, this book is not exactly a light beach read. It is not completely dry, but the writing has an academic feel and it is written for a very specific audience. I enjoyed it and learned a few things, but it will never land on my own top ten lists of books that I have read.

Do I recommend it? Maybe.
