"Mr. Yerushalmi's previous writings, on the Spanish and Portuguese Jews . . . established him as one of the Jewish community's most important historians. His latest book should establish him as one of its most important critics. Zakhor is historical thinking of a very high order - mature speculation based on massive scholarship." (New York Times Book Review)
"Zakhor may well be a permanent contribution to Jewish speculation upon the dilemmas of Jewishness, and so it may join the canon of Jewish wisdom literature." (New York Review of Books)
Yerushalmi relates a missing book long time a due with great research and knowledge. A must for everyone interested in Judaism
This is a great book and is well constructed, examples are in the correct location and is very clear.
This is a must book for each one that has a relation to historiography and Jewish memory.
