Bad Jews is a book published in 2022 by author Emily Tamkin about the history of American Jewish politics and identities. It is an examination of the last 100 years of American Jewish politics, culture, identities, and arguments. Drawing on over 150 interviews, Tamkin tracks the evolution of Jewishness throughout American history, and explores many of the evolving and conflicting Jewish positions on assimilation; race; Zionism and Israel; affluence and poverty, philanthropy, finance, politics; and social justice. Tamkin is a journalist in Washington, DC whose work has appeared in a number of publications, including the Boston Globe, Columbia Journalism Review, the New Republic, Politico, Slate, and the Washington Post. Previously, she covered foreign affairs as a staff writer at Foreign Policy and BuzzFeed News and US politics, foreign policy, and society at the New Statesman. She is the author of The Influence of Soros: Politics, Power, and the Struggle for an Open Society, which was published in 2020.
