"Wissenschaft reflected all the dilemmas that faced German Jews in the age of emancipation, and the sensitive reconstruction of the tensions within Jewish scholarly practice in nineteenth-century Germany is one of the great strengths of Schorsch's book . . . this is a learned, insightful and diverting study of the troubled encounter with history that accompanied the Jewish transition to modernity." —Times Literary Supplement
