Melbourne book launch: The Radical Jewish Tradition
AboutNew book by Donny Gluckstein and Janey Stone.
“Nowhere else will you find a coherent account of the Jewish socialist tradition’s currents in eastern Europe, London, and New York. Its fascinating stories are framed by convincing arguments that working class struggles for liberation, united across ethnic and religious lines, are possible and essential. The tradition is counterposed to the Zionist fable that Jews can achieve security through militarism and colonisation”. —
Rick Kuhn, Australian Marxist scholar, activist, and Deutscher Prize winner.
“This timely book is an excellent antidote to any attempt to de-historicise conflicts such as the one raging in historical Palestine. Pre-Zionist Jewish life and culture, in particular in its Marxist and radical forms, as this book so succinctly proves, invalidates the absurd attempt to equate Zionism with Judaism and anti-Zionism with antisemitism.
