Asserting that "Judaism is in the midst of a paradigm shift," Rabbi Dow Marmur contends that the Holocaust marked "the beginning of the tragic end" of the old paradigm of exile. The establishment of the state of Israel points to a new beginning that has tremendous religious significance for contemporary Jews. The Star of Return, a liberal Jewish response to the religious implications of changes in the post-Holocaust era, looks at this profound transformation in terms of the individual Jew's relationship to Israel and establishes that relationship within the context of traditional Judaism.

An intrepid reporter boards the Lusitania in a “vivid . . . ripping good” spy thriller from the Pulitzer Prize–winning author (The Wall Street Journal). It’s 1915, World War I is in full swing, and foreign correspondent Christopher “Kit” Marlowe Cobb is tasked with following a German intellectual and possible secret service agent traveling on the British ocean liner Lusitania. But Cobb is soon distracted from his mission by the sultry Selene Bourgani, a world-renowned silent film star who also appears to be working with German Intelligence. The more Cobb thinks he knows her, the less he really does. The secrets Selene harbors have the potential to set the whole international conflict further aflame—and they’re ignited by a German U-boat attack off the Irish coast. From the perilous waters of the Atlantic, Cobb tails Selene first into London’s darkest alleyways, then on to the powder keg that is Istanbul. Across the war-torn stages of Europe and the Middle East, Cobb must venture deep behind enemy lines, knowing full well he may not return. The second book in Robert Olen Butler’s Christopher Marlowe Cobb series, The Star of Istanbul “has it all: history galore, exotic foreign settings, a world-weary yet engaging protagonist, villains in abundance and a romance worthy of Bogart and Bergman” (BookPage). “[An] outstanding work of historical fiction.” —Huntington News “Butler . . . holds the reader transfixed, like a kid at a Saturday matinee.” —Booklist, starred review “An exciting thriller with plenty of action, romance, and danger . . . [a] fast-paced journey through a world at war.” —Library Journal

Henry A. Wallace, Reinhold Niebuhr, and American Liberalism

Mark Kleinman juxtaposes the intellectual and professional lives of two key figures in post-World War II American history, Henry Wallace and Reinhold Niebuhr, to explore a fatal division in American liberal thinking about domestic politics and international relations during and after the war. This division over whether it was desirable to cooperate with the Soviet Union has had a profound impact on contemporary American domestic politics and foreign policy. Wallace, FDR's secretary of agriculture and later vice president, advocated a foreign policy philosophy that did not rule out a cooperative relationship with the Soviet Union. Niebuhr, however, an internationally respected Protestant theologian and political commentator, was a classic cold war liberal who categorically rejected the possibility of cooperation with any communists either at home or abroad. Niebuhr shared Wallace's liberal domestic philosophy, but in the postwar years their different positions on foreign policy matters hardened into opposition. The first part of the book explores the sources -- personal, political, cultural -- of Wallace's and Niebuhr's conflicting positions. The second part carries the story from 1942, when this split in the liberal community was minor, to 1948, when Wallace ran for president on the Progressive Patty ticket. His overwhelming defeat not only ended Wallace's political career but also underscored the defeat of "popular front" positions. Kleinman argues that cold war liberalism subsequently dominated American foreign policy to the extent that debate was impossible. Liberals who supported Wallace's position felt they could not engage in any kind of public debate for fear of being labeledfools or communist dupes. It was not until the Vietnam War that Americans challenged and helped to change their country's relentless anticommunist position.
