The eighth volume in a landmark series, this anthology of Jewish culture and civilization encompasses the period between the world wars

An anthology of Jewish culture between the world wars, the editors’ selections convey the variety, breadth, and depth of Jewish creativity in those tempestuous decades. Despite—or perhaps because of—external threats, Jews fought vigorously over religion, politics, migration, and their own relation to the state and to one another. The texts, translated from many languages, span a wide range of politics, culture, literature, and art. This collection examines what was simultaneously a tense and innovative period in modern Jewish history.

Todd M. Endelman is Professor Emeritus of History and Judaic Studies at the University of Michigan. Zvi Gitelman is Tisch Professor of Judaic Studies Emeritus and Professor Emeritus of Political Science at the University of Michigan. Deborah Dash Moore is Frederick G. L. Huetwell Professor of History and Professor of Judaic Studies at the University of Michigan. She is editor in chief of The Posen Library of Jewish Culture and Civilization.

“A herculean task to assemble such a mighty anthology. This volume argues for the richness and variety in Jewish political, cultural, and aesthetic life.”—Lila Corwin Berman, Temple University
