An exceptionally fine symposium in which distinguished scholars argue divergent views on the history of the Jewish presence in France. Scholarly, informative, and above all, controversial on such issues as whether anti-Semitism was central or peripheral in French life, on the relations of the French left to Jews, and on French behavior under Vichy.
