About the Authors
  • This seventh volume of The Cambridge History of Judaism provides an authoritative and detailed overview of early modern Jewish history, from 1500 to 1815. The essays, written by an international team of scholars, situate the Jewish experience in relation to the multiple political, intellectual and cultural currents of the period. They also explore and problematize the 'modernization' of world Jewry over this period from a global perspective, covering Jews in the Islamic world and in the Americas, as well as in Europe, with many chapters straddling the conventional lines of division between Sephardic, Ashkenazic, and Mizrahi history. The most up-to-date, comprehensive, and authoritative work in this field currently available, this volume will serve as an essential reference tool and ideal point of entry for advanced students and scholars of early modern Jewish history.

    • Almost forty chapters, each written by a leading expert in their field, offer a commanding and detailed survey of all key aspects of early modern history
    • Each chapter offers an engaging summary of current knowledge, but also engages with leading scholarship and provides an interpretive overview of the topic under discussion
    • Will appeal to readers from advanced undergraduate level, as well as educated general readers who need information to be provided in an accessible fashion, including other scholars in the field who will seek and find challenging interpretations and syntheses
