Book launch and reception for: 'Being Jewish and Doing Justice: Bringing Argument to Life (Vallentin

A new book by Brian Klug

Introduced by Tony Kushner


'Being Jewich and Doing Justice' (part of the Parkes/ Weiner Series published by Vallentine Mitchell)expans the standard concept of Jewich studies. The prologue offers a novel reading of the idea of 'the people of God', placing the people firmly 'in the world'. The rest of the book, in this spirit, brings argument to bear on a broad range of contemporary moral and political controversies, many of them turning on puzz;es about identity. athe scope of the book extends from Judaism, Zeionism and antisemitism to the language of race, the status of animals and the rights of the child. Drawing on his training as an academic philosopher, his Jewich education abd his personal experience, Klug confronts uncomfortable questions with rigour, candour and humour. And while the chapters are not a series of steps in an overall argument, collectively they develop the title theme: the inner connection between being Jewich and doing justice.
