Regional Jewish history at its best.
 
This book is an anthology of essays designed to introduce readers to key issues in this growing field of scholarship and to encourage further study. Divided into five sections--“Jews and Judaism,” “Small Town Life,” “Business and Governance,” “Interaction,” and “Identity”--the essays cover a broad geographical and chronological span and address a variety of topics, including economics, politics, roles of women, ethnicity, and race. This organizational structure enhances the volume’s historical treatment of regional Jewish history and lends itself to cross-disciplinary study in fields such as cultural studies, religious studies, and political science.

“The essays, while published elsewhere, make a contribution when read against one another. Bringing them together in an anthology allows the reader to think about the issues raised in much deeper ways. In addition, the essays are diverse, well researched, and thoughtful. They reflect a wide spectrum of opinion, providing interest and challenge.”-- Phyllis K. Leffler, coauthor of Academic and Public History: A Paradigm and Philosophy
