BooknewsKraemer (Talmud & rabbinics, Jewish Theological Seminary) introduces a new generation of students to his contributions to the study of rabbinic Judaism. Adding an introduction to each of the 24 essays reprinted from journals and books from 1986-98, he elucidates the question of method, historical and literary studies, and applied scholarship (e.g. Jewish death practices as a commentary on the relationship of humans to the natural world). The bibliography of Kraemer's writings includes reviews which are not sampled here. Lacks an index. Distributed by University Press of America. Annotation c.
