Description: The present collection includes thirty-one articles written by scholars from every continent except Africa and Antarctica, a potent testimony to the truly worldwide scope of Jewish studies. Worthy of note in this context is the relatively high representation, among the authors of articles submitted and eventually chosen for publication, of The articles are divided into six chronological and/or topical categories: history of the Jews in the medieval and early modern periods; history of the Jews in Eastern Europe; Holocaust studies; Zionism and the State of Israel; gender and history; intellectual history.
The authors, senior scholars and younger researchers alike, apply a wide variety of disciplinary and interdisciplinary approaches to their topics, ranging from social and economic history to sociological field work and literary analysis. The result, we believe, is an impressive collection of studies that illuminate in innovative ways the topics chosen for investigation. You may also like:
