A counterweight to his earlier book, "The Dignity ofDifference," Sacks makes the case for "integrated diversity"within a framework of shared political values. Arguing that globalcommunications have fragmented national cultures and that multiculturalism, intended to reduce social friction, is today reinforcing it, Sacks calls for anew approach to national identity. He envisions a responsibility-based ratherthan rights-based model of citizenship that connects the ideas of giving andbelonging. We should see society as "the home we build together,"bringing the distinctive gifts of different groups to the common good. Sackswarns of the hazards free and open societies face in the 21st century, andoffers an unusual religious defense of liberal democracy and the nation state. This logical sequel to Sacks'award-winning "The Dignity of Difference" (Continuum), "The HomeWe Build Together" makes a compelling case for "integrateddiversity" within a framework of shared political values.

An excellent and intelligentstudy of modern society. -Jewish Media Review "In this important book, Jonathan Sacks, the Chief Rabbi widely recognised in this country as a public intellectual addresses a crucial theme: how can we honour the diversity now present in Britain without losing that which holds us together?" Reviewed by Grace Davie in Church Times, May 2008 "In this environment, it is an imperativethat we honor Rabbi Sacks' message. The Home We Build Together is thus anessential read for all of us, and I commend Rabbi Sacks for writing it."

Doreen Wachmann, Jewish Telegraph--Sanford Lakoff "British Chief Rabbi Sir Jonathan Sacks is the premier public intellectual of Judaism in the English-speaking world and has no obvious counterpart in the communities of Judaism conducted in other languages. No one in Israeli intellectual life competes. This book joins with its predecessors...to form an oeuvre of moral authority and compelling logic. For a corpus of writing substantially less ambitious than this some have received the Nobel Prize." -Jerusalem Post
