The neoconservative revolution : Jewish intellectuals and the shaping of public policy by Murray Friedman( Book )

12 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 915 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

His book suggests that Jews and Jewish intellectuals have played a considerable role in the development of modern American conservatism. The focus is on the rise of a group of Jewish intellectuals and activists known as neoconservatives who began to impact on American public policy during the Cold War and in the lead up to and invasion of Iraq. It presents a portrait of the life and work of the original small group of neoconservatives including Irving Kristol, Norman Podhoretz, and Sidney Hook. This group has grown into a new generation who operate as columnists in conservative think-tanks like The Heritage and The American Enterprise Institute, in education, and in government including such figures as Paul Wolfowitz, Richard Perle and Elliot Abrams. The book suggests the neo cons have been so significant in reshaping modern American conservatism and public policy that they constitute a neoconservative revolution
What went wrong? : the creation and collapse of the Black-Jewish Alliance by Murray Friedman( Book )

13 editions published between 1993 and 2014 in English and held by 765 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

For nearly a century, blacks and Jews were allies in the struggle for civil rights and equality in America. Sometimes risking their lives, they waged battle in the courts, at lunch counters, and in the academy, advancing the cause of all minorities. Their historical partnership culminated in the landmark court decisions and rights legislation of the 1960s - achievements of which both groups are justly proud. But thereafter, black nationalist activists diverted the movement for civil rights into a race movement, distancing blacks from their traditional allies, and the old civil rights coalition began to disintegrate

The Utopian dilemma : American Judaism and public policy by Murray Friedman( Book )

5 editions published in 1985 in English and held by 239 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Since the turn of the century, American Jews have been closely associated with reform movements that seek to improve social conditions, to help the disadvantaged, and to achieve international peace. Jewish religious traditions and social circumstances have disposed many Jews to view politics and power idealistically. However, traditional expressions of Jewish idealism seem ill-suited to new realities, such as dealing with poverty, relationships with Black Americans, Soviet expansion, and the emergence of a worldwide anti-Israel bloc of nations. These problems and choices are presented against the backdrop of 4 decades of Jewish intellectual and social life, from the post-War "golden age" through the turmoil, anxiety, and eventual regeneration of the past 20 years.

Moving up : ethnic succession in America : with a case history from the Philadelphia school system by Daniel Judah Elazar( Book )

3 editions published in 1976 in English and held by 118 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

To aid in understanding how the process of ethnic succession has worked in America, both a conceptual overview and an indepth analysis of a particular situation that occurred over the past four decades in the Philadelphia school system are presented. Resulting from this historical investigation are a series of highly useful guidelines. The first chapter examines the subtle and not so subtle ways in which ethnicity affects the lives of Americans, and addresses specific topics such as ethnic succession and the new pluralism, diversity, ethnicity and occupational choices, patterns of ethnic succession in America, the growth of ethnic power blocs, political changes, and other issues. The next chapter focuses on a case of ethnic succession: the entry and upward movement of blacks in teaching and administrative posts in the Philadelphia schools in the 60's and early 70's and their partial replacement of Jews and Italians with the assistance of white Protestant cosmopolitan leaders of the school system. This case study should be viewed against the backdrop of the social trends that are described throughout the document. Although it is not examined indepth, it is recognized that the ethnic composition of both the teaching staff and student body is of great significance in the educational process. (Author/AM)
