The year 1492 saw both the landing of Columbus in the Americas and the expulsion of Jews from Spain. Nine essays illuminate the cultural developments leading to those pivotal events and the centuries of repercussion both for Jews and Native Americans. They describe the Jewish contributions to Spanish culture, the efforts of women to preserve Jewish culture before and after 1492, the major involvement of Jews in the settlement of the New World, and their struggles to gain the same opportunities the colonies offered Christian settlers. No index. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
