Summary
"With Great Vigour and from the vantage point of long experience of writing and teaching Jewish history, Moshe Rosman treats the key questions that postmodernism raises for the writing of Jewish history. What is the relationship between Jewish culture and history and those of the non-Jews among whom Jews live? Can we - in the light of postmodernist thought - speak of a continuous, coherent Jewish People, with a distinct culture and history?" "Rosman presents a concentrated, coherent, cogent argument as to what considerations must be brought to bear on the writing of Jewish history today. By highlighting in one book the issues raised by postmodernism, How Jewish Is Jewish History? provides those in the field with a foundation from which to discuss how it should be practised in the light of this generation's challenges. It will be a valuable resource for students of Jewish history and historiography and a handy tool for scholars who must confront the issues aired here in their own more narrowly focused scholarly works."--BOOK JACKET
