Jewishness and the Human Dimension 1st Edition
Use the Amazon App to scan ISBNs and compare prices.
Boyarin avoids both extended academic dryness and the false chipperness of the hers of popularizers now stampeding through the fields of science writing-W.C. Bamberger
In this fascinating collection of essays, Jonathan Boyarin explores with considerable subtlety the connections between Jewish studies and Jewish lives. This is an important contribution to understanding the modern identity of Jewishness.-Talal Asad
A brilliant, powerful, and original book, exploring the multiple connections and tensions between what it means to be a Jew and what it means to be a human being.-Naomi Seidman
