This chapter presents a selection of book review essays which investigate the topics of cultural studies, literature, and thought. The first book examines the meaning of Judaism and Jewishness in the modern age. The second book reviewed aims to construct a “genealogy” linking the key components of Jewish secularism. Other books reviewed here discuss the perception of the Jew as the ultimate “Other” in European Christian culture, the modernist Hebrew republic of letters in Europe in the first third of the twentieth century, and prewar and wartime experiences of Polish Jewish survivors of the Holocaust. The final book reviewed examines the history of American Jewish literature focusing on the small community of American Hebraists during the first half of the twentieth century.

Keywords:   Judaism, Jewish secularism, Other, European Christian culture, Polish Jewish survivors, American Hebraists, United States
