Abstract:

"This book is a long awaited work on discovering and re-discovering the long standing relations, at times warm and supportive, and at other times conflicted, and troubled linkages between Jews and African Americans in the context of American history. However, these two prominent writers go beyond the long and troubled history of Jews and African Americans in the United States, by exploring the historical origins of these two peoples by stretching their narrative to Africa and Israel and the politics therein. Brackman and Isaac are nothing but honest about their strong feelings and closely examine the historical data of these relationship in searching for an understanding of the tortured paths that it may have taken. It is a book that will be part of the controversy, but also, an essential part of the on-going conversation on the links and at times, challenging but on-going conversation"--Provided by publisher.
