Jews and Power confronts the paradox of Jewish politics: How is it that a nation that has generally proven to be exceptionally strong and adaptable – a successful people, all things considered – has such a dismal political track record? Why do the Jews, having reestablished their national home, contend there with hostility no less extreme than that which hounded them in the Diaspora, when they were scattered among the nations of the world? How can it be that our system of government is simultaneously among both the best and worst in the world, both the smartest and the stupidest, both the strongest and the most vulnerable?
