About the Author:

Joseph Dan, Gershom Scholem Professor of Kabbalah at the Hebrew University, Jerusalem, is author of The Teachigns of Hasidism and coeditor of Studies in Jewish Mysticism.

Review:

"Bold and uncompromising. Cleverly, he turns a lot of revisionist race history on its head."-"Patterns of Prejudice",

"Insight, authority and scrupulousness are among the virtues of Seth Forman's account of the interaction of two conspicuous minorities in the postwar era. In its clarity and its wisdom, "Blacks in the Jewish Mind" constitutes a marvelous advance over previous scholarship; and in showing how frequently Jews misunderstood their own communal interests, this book offers a challenge to the present even as the past is luminated."-Stephen Whitfield, Brandeis University

"[A] rich, engaging, scholarly, and nuanced chronicle of an . . . often-tormented interethnic, interreligious, interracial relationship."-"MultiCultural Review",

"In an area where deep emotions and strong ideological feelings pass for information, Seth Forman's book is a model of calm, rational thought. He puts the black-Jewish relationship in a deeper historical perspective than has existed up to this point. Blacks in the Jewish Mind will be welcome to a broad public generally as well as scholars in the field."-Murray Friedman, author of "What Went Wrong: The Creation and Collapse of the Black-Jewish Alliance"
