MEDIA REVIEWS

"Edward Alexander is a master of the essayist's art. His writings on literature, politics, and Jewish history enrich us with the knowledge and understanding he brings to each subject. With razor-sharpness his essays clarify issues that have been blurred and confused. They also entertain us with their rapier-like wit, for Alexander is a brilliant polemicist. Above all, these essays are alive with passion for Judaism and Israel and they quicken our pulse as we read."

--Lucy S. Dawidowicz

"Edward Alexander is a superb polemicist, an essayist of wit, elegance, logic, irony, and allusive power. His targets are keenly selected and cleanly struck; and his instinct for what ought to constitute the cargo of a civilized mind is always on the mark."

--Cynthia Ozick

"The title does not do justice to the diversity and intellectual scope of Edward Alexander's essays. Though committed to his thesis-that modern Jews are "worm-eaten by liberalism "-he brings so much wit and literary discernment to his discussion that opponents will often be stimulated rather than outraged. Because his passion and consistency are enriched and refined by unexpected literary references and historical parallels, he can be read with profit and appreciative chuckles even by those who disagree with his position."

--Marie Syrkin

"Edward Alexander is one of the best writers around. He is a marvelous polemicist. This book of his essays is as polemical as it is fair. It is as literate and urbane as it is passionate. Best of all, it focuses with unerring certainty on the issues most vital to the Jewish people in the present age."
