Editorial Reviews

This is a very essential and long-awaited work about an important ancient part of the Jewish world little-known by many. A superbly organized book. This volume fills an important gap in our knowledge of Jewish diasporas with its comprehensive picture of the historical experience of Jews in the Muslim world and their encounter with modernity. This book will likely become indispensable for students and suggestive of new research agendas for years to come.
