Review quote

"Malino's work is a welcome addition.... [She] describes very clearly the tensions that existed between the Sephardic community of Bordeaux and the Ashkenazic Jews of France [and] clearly depicts their role in the relation of the Jews with Napoleon and the forming of the Grand Sanhedrin." - Choice; "Malino writes... in such a fashion that the whole transit of Jews to modernity is illumined." - Christian Century; "Malino's book is valuable to students of both the early state and Jewish history." - American Historical Review"
