With the establishment of the state of Israel, the Jews inaugurate a renewed period of sovereignty. Wisse tells the story of the third and fourth periods. Knight Professor of International Studies. A book, on the other hand, that celebrates the Jewish return to sovereign power, in all its promise and complexity, is as unusual as it is welcome.

It rehearses many of the arguments familiar to those Jews of the diaspora who have grown up in contact with the Zionist project. But it also has a certain delicacy, in particular in its openness to alternative histories, alternative political arrangements. This book is both an acknowledgment of that openhearted, clearsighted desire for peace, but also — and so to speak — in the meantime, a celebration of the new Jewish ability to await its arrival. In the second, very brief in duration, the Jews are organized in a state for a while, indeed, in two states. None of this is apparent to the anti-Semite, for whom Jewish power has been a constant, ever working to the disadvantage of non-Jews.
