Praise

“Credible and important.”—Kirkus Reviews

“An instructive introduction to the territory…. Their ultimate proposal: a campaign of ‘healing and repair in both communities,’ aimed at fighting both anti-Semitism and racism. An ambitious agenda, given that, as they note, there are currently few links between Jewish and black progressives.”—Publishers Weekly

“This dialogue between two old friends—both consummate thinkers—explores the passion and pain of a dying relationship.”—Booklist
