In this book, 19 prominent representatives of each side in the basic division among Strauss's followers explore his contribution to political philosophy and Jewish thought.

This assembly of critiques . . . could well serve as a pointer to the conflicts engendered by a system of thinking that strove to challenge the modern world from an unfashionable standpoint.--Journal of Jewish Studies
