What is the nature of Jewish identity in the contemporary world? Using insights from many social sciences, primarily social psychology, Professor Herman examines Jewish life in its totality. He sees Israel, pro-Israeli feelings, and Zionism as the substance of present-day Jewish identity. The empirical material reviewed in this book as well as Herman's recommendations in the concluding chapter concern the relationship between Israel and the Diaspora. Includes an Index.
