Jim Sleeper, a lecturer in political science at Yale, is the author of The Closest of Strangers (Norton, 1990) and Liberal Racism (Viking, 1997). In 1971 he co-edited the anthology The New Jews with the late Alan Mintz. Sleeper’s 2009 essay, “American Brethren: Puritans and Hebrews,” in the World Affairs Journal, anticipated the current crisis in American civic culture and quoted the Israeli philosopher Yirmiyahu Yovel, who died two weeks ago.
