The author examines the nature and content of "Modern Orthodoxy" as distinct from "accomodationist Orthodoxy", "right-wing Orthodoxy" and "centrist Orthodoxy". He contends that Rabbi Emanuel Rackman occupies a unique role within Modern Orthodoxy, as evidenced by the hostility with which he was met by right-wing Orthodox leaders.
