Forthcoming IssueJQ245 - August 2021
The New Middle East:
Shifting Allies, Enemies and Loyalties
This issue of The Jewish Quarterly examines the dramatic changes unfolding in the Middle East, as the region’s powers form new rivalries, blocs and partnerships. Issue 245 looks at the evolving role of the United States and its rising tensions with Iran, as well as the causes and consequences of Israel’s normalisation agreements. The issue contains an essay by Israeli author Nir Baram that explores how Israeli attitudes to their country’s future have shifted as hopes for a lasting peace fade. Also included is a feature about the Jews of Kaifeng in China, as well as reviews, correspondence and more.
