Berghahn Books is pleased to announce the recent publication of WORLD WAR I AND THE JEWS: Conflict and Transformation in Europe, the Middle East, and America, edited by Marsha L. Rozenblit and Jonathan Karp (978-1-78920-085-0; 354 pages).
World War I utterly transformed the lives of Jews around the world, allowing them to demonstrate patriotism, dispel antisemitic myths, and fight for their rights. This book provides a fascinating survey of the ways in which Jewish communities in Europe, North America, and the Middle East participated in and were changed by the Great War during and after the conflict.
“This volume fills a crucial research gap in modern Jewish history, contains excellent essays by senior and junior scholars, and makes a convincing case why the ‘Great War’ marked a crucial turning point in modern Jewish history on both sides of the Atlantic.” · Tobias Brinkmann, The Pennsylvania State University
