Frontiers of Jewish thought
This volume chronicles the main issues that have become central to the Jewish agenda during the past 30 years, and focuses needed attention on more recent concerns--such as the State of Israel, worldwide Jewish demographic trends, anti-semitism and assimilation, as well as feminism, nuclear war, and AIDS--that promise to be consequential throughout the 1990s and beyond.
