About the Author
Daniel Boyarin is the Hermann P. and Sophia Taubman Professor of Talmudic Culture Emeritus at the University of California at Berkeley, where he held joint appointments in the Department of Near Eastern Studies and the Department of Rhetoric.
"A self-consciously radical statement that is both astute and joyous."--Kirkus Reviews

"Trenchant, plangent, and courageous, Daniel Boyarin's polemic rewrites the ground rules of what has been known for centuries as 'the Jewish question.' Any future discussion must take his 'no-state solution' into account."--Haun Saussy, University of Chicago

"Daniel Boyarin's book delves into the very heart of what it means to be Jewish in the world today, not as an assertion of exclusiveness but rather as the starting point for a universalist idea about Jewishness drawn from its complicated multifaceted history. The manifesto is thus a provocation to think anew about what constitutes nation, society, culture, and the ultimate goals of cosmopolitan humanistic enquiry. A masterpiece!"--Ato Quayson, author of Tragedy and Postcolonial Literature

"In his intrepid manifesto, Daniel Boyarin calls for a Jewish nationalism not sited in a nation-state. Far beyond the Jewish case, it provokes both those who see no more need for national identity and those who insist on a territorial home for each. As unexpected in his arguments as he is witty in his prose, Boyarin is in characteristically good form in this essential new statement."--Samuel Moyn, Yale University

"Daniel Boyarin's stirring manifesto for a Jewish diaspora nation proposes an expansive anti-statist argument that makes common cause with the freedom of Palestinians and the rights of Black Lives. His rousing call for subaltern solidarity provokes me to ask: how does the 'no-state' solution address the claims for an independent nation-state or a bi-national state as articulated by the Palestinian people whose sovereignty has been repeatedly subverted and whose dignity is daily disfigured? Read this daring essay that invites your argument, not your agreement."--Homi Bhabha, Harvard University
