From Europe to America to the Middle East, North Africa and other non-European Jewish settlement areas the Encyclopedia of Jewish History and Culture covers the recent history of the Jews from 1750 until the 1950s.
Translated from German into English, approximately 800 keywords present the current state of international research and depict a complex portrait of Jewish life - illustrated by many maps and images. About 40 key articles convey central themes on topics like autonomy, exile, emancipation, literature, liturgy, music or the science of Judaism. The seventh volume index offers a detailed list of persons, places and subjects that creates a reliable reference for working with the encyclopedia. The encyclopedia provides knowledge in an overall context and offers academics and other interested readers new insights into Jewish history and culture. It is an outstanding contribution to the understanding of Judaism and modernity.
