It’s coming down to this: as we said in the preface
our newest booklet, publishing the works of Prof. Paul
Eidelberg is the right thing to do.
Who is Prof. Eidelberg? How do you say "Thomas
Jefferson" in Ivrit (Hebrew)? Prof. Eidelberg is a political
scientist. He makes his home in Jerusalem. He lectures throughout the
world, but most often in Israel and in the United States.
And he has a lot to say about how to balance
democracy with the principles of the Torah.
Davidson Press only publishes one of his works at
The Myth of Israeli Democracy.
It’s a short booklet. You can read it in an hour or so, maybe less.
But don’t let its length deceive you. It is succinct and to the
point. Prof. Eidelberg does not waste words. We think your time will
be well spent in reading this booklet.
To introduce you to Prof. Eidelberg’s work, we have
included some free essays as links at the right.
The essays have been posted with the first essays
on the bottom of the list; hence the most current essays are at the
top of the list.
The first essay—that is
to say, the last essay on the list—is a chapter from The Myth of
Israeli Democracy. It deals with the issues of national
self-determination, and it starts with a quote from Thomas Jefferson. We think it will whet your appetite for more.
The second essay—that is
to say, the second to last essay on the list—The Failure of the Right, weighs
conservative thought in the balances and finds it wanting. It is
insightful. The essay didn’t quite belong in The Myth of
Israeli Democracy, so we published it here, as we have
published all of the other essays in the list on the above right.
