Hebraic Political Studies was an international, peer-reviewed academic journal published by the Shalem Press and devoted to recovering the Hebraic political tradition and evaluating its place in the history of political thought.
The journal was established in 2005 under the co-editorship Gordon Schochet, now Emeritus then Professor of Political Science at Rutgers University, and Arthur Eyffinger, then of the Huygens Institute in the Netherlands. Its first issue appeared in the fall of that year. The journal was devoted to the recovery and exploration of the Hebraic political tradition, that is, the uses of biblical, Talmudic, rabbinic, and other Jewish and Judaic sources by Christian and Muslim as well as Jewish authors in the history of political thought. Its aim was to set this relatively unknown Hebraic political tradition alongside the larger and well-established Greek, Roman, and Christian traditions.
Articles discussed such diverse topics as "Is there a Jewish political thought" by Abraham Melamed, "The Political Thought of John Locke and the Significance of Political Hebraism" by Fania Oz-Salzberger, and "Toward a Theory of World Jewish Politics and Jewish Foreign Policy" by Shmuel Sandler. Issues included a symposium on political Hebraism in early American political thought and papers from a Cardozo Law School conference on The Hebrew Bible in Contemporary Intellectual Discourse.
The journal's last issue appeared Fall 2009, and its website states that it is no longer accepting submissions.
