DescriptionThe Oxford Handbook of Jewish Studies reflects the current state of scholarship in the field as analyzed by an international team of experts in the different and varied areas represented within contemporary Jewish Studies. Unlike recent attempts to encapsulate the current state of Jewish Studies, the Oxford Handbook is more than a mere compendium of agreed facts; rather, it is an exhaustive survey of current interests and directions in the field.
"This informative collection of essays covers all main areas currently taught and researched throughout the world, especially in Europe, the United States and Israel ... this volume is a vital reference source, and will be of enormous benefit to undergraduates, graduates, and interested readers ... as a state-of-the-art exploration of Jewish studies, this book is of seminal importance.' Dan Cohn-Sherbok, The Church Times
"... Jewish studies scholars will welcome a work that enables them to find out everything they wanted to know, along with a whole lot of things they didn't know they wanted to know and about which they will now be able to hold intelligent conversations. In all, highly recommended."-- Jewish Chronicle
