How have Jews acquired such great power and influence in the United States? In this meticulously referenced and compel­lingly argued study, a professor of psychology at California State University (Long Beach) explains how Jews have profound­ly shaped American society, politics and culture in conformity with Jewish group interests.

This is the most important examination of the “Jewish question” to appear in many years. This monumental study -- with source notes, bibliography and index -- builds on the author's two previous scholarly studies of relations between Jews and non-Jews. They were originally issued by Praeger, a leading US academic publisher. In a powerful 66-page preface written for this paperback edi­tion, the author sums up the book’s main thesis, responds to critics, and tackles such controversial issues as the Jewish role in Communism, the role of “the Holocaust” as a central cultural icon, the Jewish grip on the media, and Jewish ef­forts to censor the Internet.

As MacDonald shows, Jews are an unusually self-absorbed people with an extraordinarily strong ethnic-cultural group identi­ty. Among non-Jews, they view themselves as permanent outsid­ers. Throughout history, Jews have played leading roles in campaigns to dismantle and transform the traditional social, political and cultural order. In 20th-century America, Mac­Donald documents, they have worked diligently and with great success to transform the host society to promote their own group interests.

MacDonald closely examines the tremendous impact of several of the most successful of these Jewish movements, including Franz Boas and egalitarian anthropology, Sigmund Freud and Freudian psychoanalysis, the "Frankfurt School," and New York City's liberal and neo-conservative intellectuals. MacDonald also traces the dominant and probably decisive Jewish role in Marxism, Communism and 1960s "New Left" radicalism. He details the critical Jewish role in overturning US immigration policy, in conscious opposition to the interests of Americans of non- Jewish European origin. As MacDonald further shows, Jews co­vertly dominated the African-American "civil rights" movement of the 1940s and 1950s. They essentially founded and financed the NAACP, for decades the most important black American or­ganization, and made possible its revolutionary legal victo­ries.
