The seventh volume of the acclaimed annual publication of the Institute of Contemporary Jewry at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, Jews and Messianism in the Modern Era: Metaphor and Meaning examines the significance and meaning of messianic metaphors, themes, and ideals in modern Jewish history and culture. In addition to the standard symposia, book reviews, and lists of recent dissertations in Jewish studies, the volume includes contributions from such noted scholars of Jewish history as Jody Elizabeth Myerson on the messianic idea and Zionist ideologies; Aviezer Ravitsky on Zionism and the state of Israel as anti-messianic undertakings; Yaacov Shavit on realism and messianism in Zionism and the Yishuv; Hannan Hever on poetry and messianism in Palestine between the two world wars; Paul Mendes-Flohr on Jewish theological responses to political messianism in the Weimar Republic; and Richard Wolin on Jewish secular messianism.

Industry Reviews

"Messianic themes have been employed with frequency and fervor by almost every political and religious movement in the modern Jewish world...This is the first time these fundamental issues have been subjected to such far-ranging scrutiny. The contributions from noted scholars examine the messianic idea in relation to such varied topics as ultra-Orthodox Judaism and its opposition to Zionism, the politics and poetry of the Yishuv, Christian millenarianism, Jewish theology in Weimar Germany, and the ideologies of Jewish socialist revolutionaries."--Book Briefings, A Supplement to Menorah Review
