The Jew in the Modern World : A Documentary History
Most complete source book available on modern Jewish History. The second edition of The Jew in the Modern World is an expanded and highly diverse collection of primary materials that trace the Jewish experience in the modern period and illustrate the transformation of Jewish religion, culture, and identity from the 17th and 18th centuries to 1948. Retaining from the first edition those documents that have proven most useful to the student of Jewish history, this volume adds hitherto unpublished and inaccessible sources concerning the Jewishexperience in Easter Europe, women in Jewish history, American Jewish life, the Holocaust, and Zionism and the nascent Jewish community in Palestine on the eve of the establishment of the State of Israel.
