This imposing collection of studies, designed to be "the first comprehensive description of Judaism and the Jews" and drawing on the scholarship of nearly 40 contributors, covers the whole range of Jewish history, culture, religion and sociology. The regrettable absence of a chapter on the Palestinian Jewish community and the new state of Israel is, the editor hopes, to be remedied in future editions.
