Jewish Radicals: A Documentary Reader by Tony Michels
Tony Michels examines the intertwined histories of Jews and the American Left.
Written in English and Yiddish, Jewish Radicals compiles rich primary documents that reflect the entire spectrum of radical opinion, from anarchism to social democracy, Communism to socialist-Zionism. Rank-and-file activists, organizational leaders, intellectuals, and commentators, from within the Jewish community and beyond, all have their say. Their stories crisscross the Atlantic, spanning from the United States to Europe and British-ruled Palestine. In this comprehensive sourcebook, the story of Jewish radicals over seven decades is told for the first time in their own words.
