Description

Studies in Contemporary Jewry brings together for the first time scholars working in different countries and belonging to different disciplines. Regarding modern Jewish history as a part of the ethnic explosion which has had a momentous impact on 19th- and 20th-century history, the contributors to Volume III address one of the greatest questions of modern Jewish studies: to what extent is modern Jewish history unique, and to what extent have Jews acted in ways similar to those of other minorities?show more
