Product description


Winner of the 2016 National Jewish Book Award in Anthologies and Collections, Jewish Book Council "The editors of [Makers of Jewish Modernity] exceed their stated goal of showing how various Jewish public figures 'transformed the 20th century,' through 43 profiles of subjects both expected ... and surprising... The entries, which assume no prior knowledge, convey a great deal of information and cogent analysis in a short space."--Publishers Weekly "A worthwhile collection for scholars and readers interested in Jewish affairs."--Kirkus

From the Back Cover

"A rich, fresh, and important contribution to the literature on Jewish modernity."--Daniel B. Schwartz, author of The First Modern Jew: Spinoza and the History of an Image

"Intriguing, stimulating, and enjoyable. These intelligent, informative essays are marvels of concision and presentation."--Jeremy Dauber, author of The Worlds of Sholem Aleichem: The Remarkable Life and Afterlife of the Man Who Created Tevye
