Description

David Myers' book explores a fascinating and untold chapter in modern Jewish intellectual history: the role of the first generation of Jewish scholars at the Hebrew University in Jerusalem in establishing Jewish studies within the framework of a Jewish national university. Committed to rewriting Jewish history according to Zionist standards, these "Jerusalem scholars" richly reflect the tensions that attended their dual allegiances, to both Zionism and the discipline of history.show more
