Summary
The memorable articles, stories and poems in this anthology have been selected from the pages of 'Midstream', a quarterly journal committed to examining the problems of Jewish existence in light of the two overwhelming events of recent Jewish history - the destruction of one third of world Jewry, with the concurrent eradication of previously accepted cultural landmarks, and the emergence of the State of Israel which posed new psychological and political problems. Although 'Midstream' defines itself as a Zionist publication, it understands this term in its historical meaning - the realization of the uncertainties inherent in a Diaspora existence even when they are not immediately apparent and the search for a solution, an ultimate reconciliation rather than temporary palliatives. -- Book jacket
