17 of 18 people found the following review helpful By Rav A Soloff on June 30, 2000
Format: Paperback
Thoroughly readable, yet acknowledging scholarly differences, FROM MESOPOTAMIA TO MODERNITY presents the history and literature of Judaism from Tanakh to the State of Israel in 245 pages. The instructor can base an adult education series, an undergraduate course or a graduate seminar on this book, its references and other sources as s/he chooses.
