Compiled by a group of distinguished international scholars, including John Pocock, Diana Pinto, Thomas Maissen and Fania Oz-Salzberger, this volume offers a threefold intellectual juncture. Its contributors analyse the liberal-republican tension-field in a novel way, juxtaposing early modern political thought with twenty-first century political concerns.

The volume conjoins Israeli political scholarship with its European and American counterparts, mapping differentials and commonalities. Topics include Israeli-Palestinian relations, law and justice, commerce and citizenship, and post-holocaust historical memory - all within the pioneering context of early modern political concepts and their contemporary significance. Of interest to researchers and advanced students of intellectual history, political philosophy, political science, international relations, European Studies, Jewish and Israel studies.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"While disparate in topic, the essays in this collection, touching upon the origins of modern political institutions and the tensions between religious and secular values in the Christian and Hebraic traditions, sparkle from the brilliance and erudition of their authors."--Joyce Appleby, UCLA Professor of History Emerita
The editors explain the urgency of bringing together a broad scope of historical and geographical analyses and a wide range of academic disciplines--to pave the way for a new understanding of the major social, political issues of today.--Book News, Inc.
