The Dignity of Difference stands far above the many other books about globalisation, both for what is has to say and for the grace with which it says it. In this most prophetic work, Rabbi Sacks has written a guide for the perplexed of our time.
Daniel Johnson, Daily Telegraph
The Dignity of Difference is a profound book that forces believers to think.
Ziauddin Sardar, The Independent
It is a splendid book. In the light of September 11, it is timely, sensible, well-written and thoughtful. Dan Cohn-Sherbok, The London Times
Aims to define nothing less than a basis for religiously sensitive civilisation.
Rowan Williams, Archbishop of Canterbury, The Jewish Chronicle
"This book is far more interesting for its discussion of faith and philosophy than for its determination of concrete politics. Perhaps this is the task of rabbis, to explain and guide rather than to rule and legislate. Jonathan Sacks writes well; every sentence counts, but the space behind the grandiloquence always leaves room for interpretation. It is this ambiguity which wins him as may admirers as detractors."
The Jerusalem Post, 6/9/02.
