In The Future of the Jews, Stuart E. Eizenstat, a senior diplomat of international reputation, surveys the major geopolitical, economic, and security challenges facing the world in general, and the Jewish world and the United States in particular. These forces include the shift of power and influence from the United States and Europe to the emerging powers in Asia and Latin America; globalization and the new information age; the battle for the direction of the Muslim world; nontraditional security threats; changing demographics, which pose a particular challenge for Jews worldwide and the rise of a new anti-Semitism that seeks to delegitimize Israel as a Jewish state. He also discusses the enduring nature of and challenges to the strategic alliance between the United States and Israel. Eizenstat’s provocative analysis will be of interest to everyone concerned about the future of Jews worldwide and in Israel and the United States’ role in a world that is confronting unprecedented simultaneous, cataclysmic changes.

About the Author:

Ambassador Stuart E. Eizenstat has held senior U.S. government positions in three presidential administrations, from the White House to the State Department, from U.S. Ambassador to the European Union to the Deputy Secretary of the Treasury. At the same time, he has been a leader in the Jewish community, having led American and international Jewish groups and institutions, and received numerous awards from Jewish organizations and academic institutions. He is the author of Imperfect Justice: Looted Assets, Slave Labor and the Unfinished Business of World War II.

Review:

The fact that Stuart E. Eizenstat is truly 'the epitome of the history of his own family' places both his decades of public service and his outstanding book, The Future of the Jews: How Global Forces are Impacting the Jewish People, Israel, and Its Relationship with the United States, in historical context and perspective. It is precisely because Eizenstat writes as a committed Jew who has always been guided by Jewish ethical and religious values that The Future of the Jews is, in the words of the former Israeli Ambassador to the U.S. Itamar Rabinovich, 'mandatory reading for Jews and Israelis who must adapt old policies and institutions to new conditions and for non-Jews who want to understand the concern of an unusually successful yet vulnerable people.' (The Washington Post)

Ambassador Eizenstat has written an important book that cogently describes the global processes, trends and shifts that are shaping our world, and will undoubtedly impact the State of Israel and the Jewish people, as we move further into the 21st century. With keen intelligence and the wisdom that comes with a lifetime of public service, Eizenstat gives the reader an undiluted account of where we are now and what we are likely to experience in the coming years. (Shimon Peres)

As enormous changes unfold around us, we need Stu Eizenstat’s keen insight into the forces of opportunity and upheaval shaping the future. Thanks to the breadth and clarity of his vision, The Future of the Jews: How Global Forces are Impacting the Jewish People, Israel, and its Relationship with the United States is a valuable aid to our own understanding. (William Jefferson Clinton, former President of the United States)

Ready or not, the future is coming. I am grateful to Stuart Eizenstat for laying out such a nuanced picture of what the Jewish people can expect the future to bring, and for raising such insightful and compelling recommendations for how we might better prepare for it. His preface, aptly entitled “Uncharted Waters,” supplies an eagle-eyed context for anyone trying to make sense of this unfolding, historic moment in the Middle East.

Stu Eizenstat has produced a valuable and prophetic book. The Future of the Jews is sure to challenge assumptions and—amidst the sudden extraordinary changes unfolding today in the Middle East and beyond—to inspire the kind of creative thought necessary for the Jewish community worldwide to seize the opportunities and weather the inevitable challenges that are sure to emerge in the years ahead.
(Joseph I. Lieberman, U.S. Senator, Connecticut)

Stuart Eizenstat is the right person to write a book on the impact of world trends on the Jewish people. His combined experience of working at the highest levels of the US government and as Chairman of the Jewish People Policy Institute prepared him well for this task. And he hasn't disappointed.

His book is a balanced, insightful, sober but ultimately optimistic assessment of the Jewish future in the face of a rapidly changing world. This book is an effective response to the doomsayers as well as to those who see smooth sailing ahead. It should serve as a useful guide for discussions about the Jewish future for years to come. (Abraham Foxman, National Director of the Anti-Defamation League)

We stand at a time when the familiar certainties of the Cold War world have been engulfed by new, unforeseen challenges. Eizenstat’s remarkable book is a brilliant, insightful and illuminating analysis of the global trends that are poised to have a particularly devastating impact on America, Israel and the West. The Future of the Jews is a deeply-reasoned and provocative work, worthy of serious attention.
(Dr. Henry A. Kissinger)

I have worked in the White House with Stu Eizenstat on some of the most difficult issues facing the United States and the world. He is one of the most outstanding public servants I have ever been associated with, and demonstrates his accumulated knowledge and wisdom in three American administrations in this remarkable book. The scope, brilliance, and power of this book makes it essential reading for everyone interested in understanding the major global challenges facing the United States, as well as the Jewish people and Israel in the 21st century, and how to meet them successfully. As Israel's major ally, Stu compellingly makes the case that a strong America is an indispensable ingredient to a more secure Israel. (Dr. Walter F. Mondale, Former Vice President)

The fate of the Jews has always been influenced by their interaction with the global and regional environments. What will be the fate of the Jewish people and the Jewish state in the 21st century? Stuart Eizenstat’s masterful, horizons broadening and deeply thought analysis of the Global Forces impacting on Western civilizations and the Jewish future is an eye opener for anyone interested in the fate of the Jewish people and Israel, and is an invitation for innovative action to those who wish to impact on the Jewish fate in the 21st century. (Sallai Meridor, former Israeli Ambassador to the United States)

Stuart Eizenstat provides an insightful and sober analysis of recent seismic changes that will challenge the world community well into the 21st century. Benefiting from his unique vantage point as a well-travelled American ambassador on the world stage and as a leader of major Jewish organizations in the United States and Israel, his book reads as a call to action for Israel and the Jewish people worldwide and charts a course to help its leaders navigate the troubled waters that lay ahead. An impressive grasp of the issues, powerfully and masterfully argued, this book should be required reading. (Jehuda Reinharz, President, Mandel Foundation and the President Emeritus, Brandeis University)
