The Jews in Nineteenth-Century France Reviews


"This is one of the most important works on French Jewish intellectual and cultural history to have appeared in recent years. In a deft revision of the accepted picture of French Jewry, Graetz interweaves intellectual and cultural trends and a close study of political developments to present a composite picture of a group in the process of fundamental transformation."-Aron Rodrigue, Stanford University
