About the Author:

Daniel J. Elazar (1934-1999) was president of the Jerusalem Center for Public Affairs, and professor of political science and director of the Center for the Study of Federalism at Temple University. His many books include the four-volume The Covenant Tradition in Politics (Transaction).

Review:

Covenant and Polity in Biblical Israel is a great contribution to the historical and theoretical understanding of the role of founding covenants as Biblical religious and political concepts.”

—Kenneth L. Deutsch, Journal of Politics

“Elazar’s political reading of the Hebrew Scriptures is not only coherent—it is compelling... It is a pleasure to accompany him as he shows how the text lived and lives in the political culture of freedom-loving peoples.”

—Alan Mittleman, professor or religion, Muhlenberg College

“Daniel Elazar’s Covenant and Polity in Biblical Israel is deserving of careful study by those who wish to understand the most fundamental concepts that are at the foundation of American and Western civilizations and that hold the key to the future of human civilization.”

—Vincent Ostrom, Arthur F. Bentley Professor Emeritus of Political Science, Indiana University

“Elazar’s political reading of the entire Bible, while strikingly original and penetrating, is at the same time clear and straightforward.”

—Robert A. Licht, Visiting Scholar, the Meyerhoff Center for Jewish Studies, University of Maryland

“Professor Elazar has drawn on his lifetime of research and reflection to introduce contemporary readers to the Bible as a classic of political theory... He leads us beyond the slogans liberation to the complex work of founding new orders of justice in the midst of conflicts between inherited kinship and voluntary association.”

—William Johnson Everett, professor of ethics and ecclesiology, Emory University
