Pressestimmen"Jewish identity presents a particular challenge for students of culture because the Jews are at once a profoundly variable group--both religious and secular, national and cosmopolitan, ethnically diverse--and also highly unified by historical and textual associations. Boundaries of Jewish Identity is a provocative and stimulating book about a much talked about but surprisingly under-analyzed subject."- David Biale, University of California, Davis
