Editorial Reviews

Review

Meyer, arguably the dean of German-Jewish historians, has assembled a superb team of scholars for an ambitious work of synthesis: a projected four-volume history of German Jewry in modern times. The opening volume ranges broadly over the transitional period to modernity--from the close of the Middle Ages to the French Revolution. Of particular interest, among a cross-section of fascinating topics covered, are the changing position and status of Jewish women in Germany and discovery of the new understanding and meaning of childhood and children's education within the German-Jewish Enlightenment. Readers will eagerly look forward to future volumes in this series.

(Jewish Book World)

[The work] has an engaging note of commitment. The result is a narrative―sensitively translated―that is judicious but always absorbing.... The enterprise will be judged a brilliant success.

(Times Literary Supplement)

"The extraordinary significance of this work cannot be questioned.... One can speak with complete justification of a major historigraphical event."

(Die Zeit)

The tone is sober, the judgments balanced, the coverage comprehensive, and the learning impressive.

(Jewish Chronicle)
