Summary:
"Eleanor Mallet's book provides a tour, from a personal vantage, of the historical forces that are in play for Jews today.

Abstract:

"Eleanor Mallet's book provides a tour, from a personal vantage, of the historical forces that are in play for Jews today. In it she connects the spare outline of her Jewish past with its fleshy, fractured history. Her Judaism had a passionate center, which found expression in part in Israel. Yet it was also filled with the dissonance that flowed from American assimilation and the Holocaust's aftermath. These are the forces that have preoccupied the Jewish community for quite some time. Understanding them has taken on a new urgency with the recent and not always welcome prominence Jewishness and Israel have on today's world stage."--BOOK JACKET.
