This is the book about German Orientalism I felt I could not and did not want to write, and I am very grateful to Ian Almond for having produced it.
The Hebrew Republic: Jewish Sources and the Transformation of European Political Thought / Eric Nelson
Review Date:28 Feb 2011
This is a short book on a big topic. It seeks to challenge the standard narrative of European political thought, by offering a sharply revisionist account of its foundations.
