Prof. Kaplan Publishes New Book: The Origins of Democratic Zionism

Dr. Gregory Kaplan (Hispanic Studies) published a book, The Origins of Democratic Zionism (Routledge), which is the first study to link the modern appreciation for democratic freedom directly to Jewish political thought in seventeenth–century Amsterdam. The book focuses on influential rabbi Saul Levi Morteira, as well as two of the most renowned members of his congregation, Baruch Spinoza and Miguel de Barrios.
