Review:


"The incredibly rich, diverse array of primary sources, logical organization, and clear presentation make it a first choice for use in all of my courses in modern Jewish history...The fact that one paperback voulme covers the entire range of most courses in modern Jewish history makes it an easy choice when I am contemplating what to assign students for reading."

-James Loefller, University of Virginia


"There are no serious competitors to The Jew in the Modern World [sic]. I consider it an essential text for the teaching of [modern Jewish history]."

-Avinoam Patt, American University


"The Jew in the Modern World is a crucially important sourcebook for the classroom and for the historian's library. If a student or historian of modern Jewish history is to own only one sourcebook, it ought to be this one."--Robin Judd, The Ohio State University


"There are more and more courses on modern Jewish history being taught across the United States, and an updated edition of this book will be useful for all of them. I would definitely assign a new edition of the book for my course on modern Jewish history."

-Rebecca Lesses, Ithaca College


"The main strength of The Jew in the Modern World is the quality and range of the primary sources, which are unavailable elsewhere in this succinct, user-friendly format. In some cases, the sources in this book cannot be found anywhere else, at least in translation. It is perfect for use in classroom discussions and analytical assignments involving primary sources. The fact that a single volume covers the entire range of modern Jewish history makes it an easy choice when I am contemplating what to assign students for reading."--James Loeffler, University of Virgina
