Moses as Political Leader, with Introduction by Yoram Hazony (2006)

Aaron Wildavsky

Aaron Wildavsky, a giant of American political science, brings his profound understanding of human affairs to bear on the founding of the world’s most enduring political community, the nation of Israel. Wildavsky’s brilliant study of Moses as founding father illuminates not only the Jewish past but the enduring political questions of how to build and preserve a decent, righteous, and stable community. An Introduction by Yoram Hazony places Moses as Political Leader in its context as one of the founding texts of the current revival of biblical political theory.
