Jonathan Kaufman paints a vivid, moving portrait of the relationship between blacks and Jews in recent decades--from the strong partnership forged during the civil rights movement of the 1960s to the angry war of words, recriminations, and highly charged confrontations making headlines today. Includes a new preface and epilogue by Kaufman.

Kaufman, a Pulitzer Prize-winning reporter for the Boston Globe, has written a fascinating account of the growth and collapse of the "civil rights" alliance between American Jews and blacks. By focusing on the lives and attitudes of seven persons, Kaufman creates a deeply personal analysis of the connections and tensions between the two communities. Beginning in the 1950s, blacks and Jews worked together to end legal discrimination in the South, but by the late 1960s the alliance was suffering stress over such issues as affirmative action and American support of Israel; today the coalition is virtually nonexistent. A highly recommended volume that lends fine historical perspective to recent events. Anthony O. Edmonds, Ball State Univ., Muncie, Ind.
