Gil Troy
Book Description

This acclaimed -- and already controversial -- analysis by the award-winning historian and activist Gil Troy views the Jewish vote in historical perspective. It argues that the mystery of why American Jews vote liberal -- with increasing ardor (contrary to the periodic eulogies) -- must be understood generationally, and as a story of changing American Jewish identity more than American Jewish power – which is quite limited. Ultimately, while American Jews view liberalism as part of their Jewish inheritance, blurring the lines between liberalism and Judaism, they still vote as Americans more than as Jews. Thus American Jews are more pro-choice than pro-Israel in the voting booths -- but still pro-Israel overall, proving that progressive Zionism is not an oxymoron.
