"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

Essays examining the emergence of Jewish scholarship during the period 1818 - 1919, concentrating on the Wissenschaft des Judentums movement.
