Examines the history of black-Jewish relations in America, tracing the change from unification during the Civil Rights Movement and the growth of the Democratic Party to the mutual antagonism that surfaced during the 1984 election, and searches for the reason behind the rift.
Jonathan Kaufman paints a vivid, moving portrait of the relationship between blacks and Jews in recent decades--from the strong partnership forged during the civil rights movement of the 1960s to the angry war of words, recriminations, and highly charged confrontations making headlines today.
