The Posen Library's groundbreaking anthology series—called "a feast of Jewish culture, in ten volumes" by the Chronicle of Higher Education—here explores the variety, breadth, and depth of Jewish creativity between the first and second world wars“A herculean task to assemble such a mighty anthology. This volume argues for the richness and variety in Jewish political, cultural, and aesthetic life.”—Lila Corwin Berman, Temple University"Readers seeking primary texts, documents, images, and artifacts constituting Jewish culture and civilization will not be disappointed. More important, they might even be inspired. . . . This set will serve to improve teaching and research in Jewish studies at institutions of higher learning and, at the same time, promote, maintain, and improve understanding of the Jewish population and Judaism in general." —Booklist, Starred Review An anthology of Jewish culture between the world wars, the editors’ selections convey the variety, breadth, and depth of Jewish creativity in those tempestuous decades. Despite—or perhaps because of—external threats, Jews fought vigorously over religion, politics, migration, and their own relation to the state and to one another. The texts, translated from many languages, span a wide range of politics, culture, literature, and art. This collection examines what was simultaneously a tense and innovative period in modern Jewish history.
