Despite the vicissitudes of their anomalous historical experience, the Jews survive as am identifiable entity.

As the only volume of readings in the area of Jewish historiography and the philosophy of Jewish history, Ideas of Jewish History acquaints the reader with both the universal and the particular challenges inherent in the writing of Jewish history.
