This book focuses on the forces, events, and personalities that over the past 150 years have shaped the Jewish communities of the Arab world, changing the relations between Jews and Arabs more radically than anything since the rise of Islam nearly 1400 years ago.

Review:

?A concise and instructive analysis of the status of Jews in a diverse group of countries ranging from Morocco in the west to Iraq in the east ... this book is valuable for its ability to enrich understanding of this important part of Jewish history by placing it within the political, economic and cultural life of the Arab world.??New York Times

(New York Times New York Times 2012-12-19)

?In scope and perspective, The Jews of Arab Lands in Modern Times is impressive.??Jerusalem Post

(Jerusalem Post Jerusalem Post 2012-12-19)

?An absolutely amazing historical account which brings us insights into Jewish life in the Muslim world, the Arab-Israeli conflict and the different paths of development followed by European and Middle Eastern Jews in modern times.??Chashm Andaaz Magazine
