This magisterial book is the first to provide a history of Jewish writing and thought in the German-speaking world. Written by 118 of the most distinguished scholars in the field, the book is arranged chronologically, moving from the eleventh century to the present. Throughout, it depicts the unique contribution that Jewish writers have made to German culture and at the same time explores what it means to be the 'other' within that mainstream culture.
