Reviews
"Overturning conventional understandings of American Jewry's relations with Israel during the state's formative decades, Geoffrey Levin depicts a long arc of American Jewish concern and protest over Israeli treatment of Palestinians. Meticulously researched and powerfully argued, Levin's book provides essential background for the current state of Israel-diaspora relations."--Derek Penslar, Harvard University

"Intelligent, compelling, and riveting. Levin gives us, for the first time, a truly transnational history of the relationship between American Jews and Israel."-- Melani McAlister, George Washington University

"Geoffrey Levin's engrossing study powerfully dismantles conventional wisdom about the attitudes and activities of American Jewish communal leadership vis-à-vis Palestinian rights in the decades after 1948. The result is a book that should be read by all interested in the past and future of justice in Israel/Palestine."--James Loeffler, author of Rooted Cosmopolitans
