"This is an important book."--Religion & Literature "An invaluable addition to scholarship on Jewish literature both biblical and contemporary."--Journal of Jewish Identities "Israel in Exile evokes the importance of a critical and subversive Diaspora perspective for an Israeli society that has not yet found its territorial and individual identity. . . . Raises important questions for the political situation in Israel today."--Shofar
