Despite the vicissitudes of their anomalous historical experience, the Jews survive as am identifiable entity. They have withstood one challenge after another - both physical and intellectual - somehow maintaining an historical continuity. How Jewish writers have dealt with this enigma serves as the subject of this volume.

With these words from the Preface, Michael A. Meyer characterizes the scope of his Ideas of Jewish History. As the only volume of readings in the area of Jewish historiography and the philosophy of Jewish history, Ideas of Jewish History acquaints the reader with both the universal and the particular challenges inherent in the writing of Jewish history.
