The Jewish Mystique book. The book was written by Dutch-American Ernest Van Den Haag, who unlike most limp-wristed scholars, has been tortured for his beliefs. Sticker residue and stamp on endpapers. Van Den Haag spent almost two years in solitary confinement under Mussolini's Fascist government on top of surviving a near fatal assassination attempt. But unlike most Leftists, Van Den Haag was somewhat of a racial realist who was opposed to desegregation, which he actually "The Jewish Mystique" is a fairly honest and interesting look at "the Jewish question.

Van den Haag like Paul Johnson and Thomas Cahill later writes from outside the Jewish experience with real appreciation and understanding. Published by Thriftbooks. com User, 19 years ago. I enjoyed this book, mostly because of the fascinating subject matter. we are left to judge for oursleves whether he was right or wrong.

New York, NY, Stein and Day, 1969. In intellectual and academic circles, Ernest van den Haag is respected for his brilliant mind, his outspoken and often highly controversial assertions, and a very unacademic, sharp, biting style. Passion and Social Constraint, before its adaptation into a book for the general reader, was part of an enormous textbook, which Dr. van den Haag wrote with Professor Ralph Ross called The Fabric of Society. Son of Max and Flora (van den Haag) van den Haag. came to the United States, 1940, naturalized, 1947.

Explores all facets of Jewish intellect, morality, and sensibility in order to differentiate between fact and fancy about the Jewish way of life

This sociologist author is a combination between Eric Hoffer, with his incisive observations on the causes of mass movements (rendered as aphorisms) and Theodore Dalrymple (Life at the Bottom: The Worldview That Makes the Underclass), with his conservatism and lengthier (but interesting and well worded) explanations. Like Hoffer, van den Haag worked real jobs (as a bus boy and a vegetable seller as compared to Hoffer's years as a prospector, migrant worker, and longshoreman) and got a chance of observe human beings first hand (instead of as intellectual constructions of his own ego, like the typical academic). Also similarly to Hoffer, Van den Haag's verbal dexterity is all the more impressive, given that English is not his first language.

There are many incisive observations and explanations for many things:

1. In this chapter on Jewish radicalism (p. 123): "The champions of the underdog needs underdogs to champion.....[They] will serve as stage props, and hopefully as battering rams." Compare this to a quote from The True Believer: Thoughts on the Nature of Mass Movements (Perennial Classics): "Hitler dressed 80 million Germans in costumes and made them perform in a grandiose, heroic, and bloody opera."

2. In his chapter on Jewish vs. black discrimination (p. 102): "Justices Cardozo, Brandeis, and Frankfurter became justices of the Supreme Court in spite of being Jewish. Thurgood Marshall became Mr. Justice Marshall because he was a Negro. He is a competent lawyer. No one ever accused him of being an outstanding jurist." And in this way, the author predicts that affirmative action (positive discrimination) will associate blacks with mediocrity, while negative discrimination will associate Jews with superiority. And in practice, that is precisely what has happened.

3. Further, in the chapter on Jewish vs. black discrimination (which, I believe, is the single best chapter of the book) in the subsection on "Negro Antisemitism" it reads (p. 109) "Jews are a conspicuously successful American minority. They have it made. Negroes have not" and "The object of the fight is less important than the process of fighting for it and the pride that goes with having obtained something by power." (p.111)

True to Hoffer, many people have referenced this book in later writings years after it was written. The comment about "50% of radicals are Jews but 50% of Jews are not radicals" was picked up by Dennis Prager and Joseph Telushkin in Why the Jews?: The Reason for Antisemitism.

Later, Schelley Dardashti (author of the the Tracing the Tribe blogspot) has picked up the line of reasoning that "Catholics made their best students the exact people who could not reproduce-- priests, whereas Jews made their best students the people who could have the most children-- rabbis."

This book was written at the very tail end of that lost decade (the 1960s), and so a lot of the radical types that he wrote about have gotten cushy state sheltered jobs at universities or otherwise joined the establishment. This book cannot be understood without at least a rudimentary understanding of the context of the time period in which it was written.

Of the book itself:

1. It could have used an index-- though the chapters are so short that this is not much of a drawback.

2. There are 17 (well selected) chapters at an average of 14 pages per chapter. That is just the amount that can be read in a lunch/ coffee break.

Verdict: Highly recommended.

Why are Jews smarter than Catholics ? Because Catholicism is a religion of Pork-Barrel-Sacrifice, while among Jews the-best-have-more-babies. Anyway Haag makes this point up-front in the first few pages of the book, and the review-author knows of no more concisely elegant description of this distinction, having stumbled across the book via Google, but not claiming exhaustive literacy on this.

The first part of the argument is that in primitive times, religious study was a primary way of expressing intelligence - there being no technology as of yet. Among Catholics, the best students became celibate priests. Among Jews, the best students became rabbis, AND RABBIS WERE ENCOURAGED TO MAKE BABIES.

This basic theme of course continues today. A lot of bright folks choose to become doctors, but medical school is a lengthy process - therefore doctors don't seem to have especially many babies themselves. Garrett Hardin's commonism, the doctrine of outcome-equalization, that an indiscriminate nation-or-world-wide-pork-barrel should in particular redistribute the benefits of medicine - this makes medicine or at least the doctrine of a universal-medical-insurance-pork-barrel analogous to Catholicism, hmm ? The review-author belongs to no church, is not Jewish, not a Doctor, parents were Unitarian.

FOR ANYONE INTERESTED IN JEWISH CULTURE AND THE ROLE "THE CHOSEN PEOPLE" HAVE PLAYED IN WORLD HISTORY, THIS LITERATE, WRY AND AMUSING OVERVIEW IS FASCINATING. I FIRST READ IT IN THE '60'S AFTER HAVING MOVED INTO A PREDOMINATELY JEWISH COMMUNITY AND WANTED TO LEARN MORE ABOUT MY NEIGHBORS. THIS WAS THE PERFECT CHOICE AND ITS AUTHOR WAS A PROFESSOR IN NEW YORK CITY NEAR MY HOME. I TRACKED HIM DOWN AND TOLD HIM HOW MUCH I HAD ENJOYED IT AND WE HAD A DELIGHTFUL CONVERSATION THAT ENRICHED WHAT I'D ALREADY LEARNED. IT'S A BOOK OF ITS TIME IN SOME WAYS, BUT, SINCE IT CHRONICLES THE PAST AND PRESENT OF OVER 5,000 YEARS, THAT'S JUST AN INTERESTING FOOTNOTE. THIS COPY REPLACES ONE THAT GOT LOST IN A SUBSEQUENT MOVE.

The book is incredibly old. The pages are thin and yellow. I will have to use caution when trying to read it.

Excellent product!

The best book I've ever seen on the subject. And it's _readable_.
