The book was edited by Paul Mendes-Florh and Jehuda Reinharz and is a collection of original source documents a la Back to the Sources (Barry Holtz). Kant, Spinoza, Mendelssohn, Friedlander, decrees about and against Jews, Frankel and Chorin and heaps of others. Good stock.

Fantastic collection of primary source material about the Jewish experience in the modern era. Does a wonderful job of bringing history to life and is a great source for the study of modern Jewish history.
This is a great collection of translated documents for use in teaching modern Jewish history.
Bought for a class on Modern Jewish History. Good book with interesting documents.
