The Arc of a Covenant: The United States, Israel, and the Fate of the Jewish People
The JEMB Realty Lecture in American History
The nuances of the Israeli-American relationship extend far into the past. Zionism has always been a divisive subject in the American Jewish community, and American Christians have often been the most fervent supporters of a Jewish state, from the time of J.P. Morgan and John D. Rockefeller to the present day. Author Walter Russell Mead examines the connections between Israeli and American political history, from left-wing support for Zionism in the New Deal Era to the modern evangelical movement and the Sunbelt coalition that carried Reagan into the White House.
Walter Russell Mead is the Ravenel B. Curry III Distinguished Fellow in Strategy and Statesmanship at Hudson Institute, the Global View Columnist at theWall Street Journal, and the James Clarke Chace Professor of Foreign Affairs and Humanities at Bard College. He is the author of The Arc of a Covenant: The United States, Israel, and the Fate of the Jewish People. Malia K. Du Mont (moderator) is chief of staff and vice president for strategy and policy at Bard College, where she also teaches political studies and leadership.
