520 2  "This book is a long awaited work on discovering and re-
       discovering the long standing relations, at times warm and
       supportive, and at other times conflicted, and troubled 
       linkages between Jews and African Americans in the context
       of American history. However, these two prominent writers 
       go beyond the long and troubled history of Jews and 
       African Americans in the United States, by exploring the 
       historical origins of these two peoples by stretching 
       their narrative to Africa and Israel and the politics 
       therein. Brackman and Isaac are nothing but honest about 
       their strong feelings and closely examine the historical 
       data of these relationship in searching for an 
       understanding of the tortured paths that it may have 
       taken. It is a book that will be part of the controversy, 
       but also, an essential part of the on-going conversation 
       on the links and at times, challenging but on-going 
       conversation"--Provided by publisher.
