"This book launches a landmark four-volume collaborative work exploring the political through of the Jewish people from biblical times to the present.

Each volume includes a selection of texts - from the Bible and Talmud, Midrashic literature, legal responsa, treatises, and pamphlets - annotated for modern readers and accompanied by new commentaries written by eminent philosophers, lawyers, political theorists, and other scholars working in different fields of Jewish studies. These contributors join the arguments of the texts agreeing or disagreeing, elaborating, refining, qualifying, and sometimes repudiating the political views of the original authors.

This series brings the little-known and unexplored Jewish tradition of political thinking and writing into the light, showing where and how it resonates in the state of Israel, the chief diaspora settlements, and, more broadly, modern political experience." (Publisher's description).
