This bibliography documents and annotates the various articles and books devoted to Jewish ethics. It is divided into two sections. The first is an essay exploring philosophical questions and the way in which Jewish thinkers wrestle with them. The second part is an annotated bibliography with author, subject, and title indexes that brings together widely scattered or relatively unknown works. Representing the broad spectrum of Jewish thought, it includes articles from journals published by Reform, Orthodox, Conservative, and Reconstructionist Jewish institutions, scholarly articles and books published in the United States and Europe, traditional collections of Hebrew ethical writings, both contemporary and classical, and anthologies. The bibliographical survey is divided into five major sections: general works and anthologies, the history of Jewish ethics, issues in Jewish ethics, themes in Jewish ethics, and Jewish ethics and non-Jewish ethical theories.

Editorial Reviews

.,."[The volume] is the most comprehensive resource yet published on the broad spectrum of Jewish ethics, primarily because Breslauer's selections were chosen with an eye toward the broad philosophical bases of Jewish ethical thought rather than the more narrowly defined treatises dealing with specific ethical conflicts or situations. Breslauer's choices appear to be representative of the major schools of thought in contemporary Judaism; most of the entries cited will be easily located in the US, and an overwhelming number of the entries are for English-language sources. Breslauer's lengthy introductory essay provides a general discussion of Jewish ethics and can be used as a framework for understanding and using the bibliography. Each entry is annotated (approximately 75 words per annotation), and the volume is well cross-referenced. Recommended primarily for those libraries maintaining a robust Judaica collection."-CHOICE
