Editorial Reviews


"The volume is nicely introduced by Yosef Yerushalmi's meditation on the concepts of exile and expulsion in the Jewish collective memory (as well as in the works oif modern historians)." -- Bernard D. Cooperman, University of Maryland, Sixteenth Century Journal

"Like the holocaust, the 1492 expulsion demands attention as a chapter in European as much as Jewish history. This wide-ranging symposium explores antecedents, causes, mechanics, and aftermath in fifteen studies reflecting the recent flowering of the 1492 scholarship.... The resulting collection is a worthy introduction to that epic of tragedy and triumph." -- Robert I. Burns, S.J., author of Muslims, Christians, and Jews in the Crusader Kingdom of Valencia, Societies in Symbiosis


"A well-conceived, well-balanced volume with thoughtful and informative contributions by many of the leading scholars of Sephardic studies. Indeed, this collection would make a first-rate textbook for college classrooms." -- Norman Stillman, University of Oklahoma
