FELDMAN, Scholarship on Philo and Josephus, 1937-1962 (1963), critical bibliography, arranged topically, with comments on both Diaspora and Palestinian Judaism generally.

(Standard scholarly treatments of Hellenistic Judaism): VICTOR A.

(Works on Palestinian Judaism): GEORGE FOOT MOORE, Judaism in the First Centuries of the Christian Era, 3 vol.

5. Contemporary Judaism:

The most convenient summary for the study of modern Jewish history is HOWARD MORLEY SACHAR, The Course of Modern Jewish History, updated and expanded ed. (1977). Modern Jewish thought and movements are covered in a useful manual by JOSEPH BLAU, Modern Varieties of Judaism (1966). NATHAN ROTENSTREICH, Jewish Philosophy in Modern Times (1968); and the last (modern) section of JULIUS GUTTMAN, Philosophies of Judaism (1964), are more advanced. The very best book on Jewish religion in the modern age is unfortunately still untranslated: MAX WIENER, Jüdische Religion im Zeitalter der Emanzipation (1933). For Zionism, see the only attempt at a comprehensive reader in English, ARTHUR HERTZBERG (ed.), The Zionist Idea (1959). There are two excellent expositions of Judaism from a Reform-Liberal point of view: LEON ROTH, Judaism: A Portrait (1960); and LEO BAECK, The Essence of Judaism (1961). Conservative Judaism is well described in a book about its early history, MOSHE DAVIS, The Emergence of Conservative Judaism (1963); and by JACOB AGUS, Dialogue and Tradition (1969), the essays of a distinguished Conservative thinker. Reconstructionism is best understood in the words of its founder, MORDECAI M. KAPLAN, Judaism As a Civilization, 2nd ed. (1957). The standard modern single volume about Orthodox Judaism is ISIDORE EPSTEIN, Judaism (1935). Neo-Hasidism was best described by its greatest exponent, MARTIN BUBER, The Origin and Meaning of Hasidism (1960). Later studies include EUGENE B. BOROWITZ, Choices in Modern Jewish Thought: A Partisan Guide (1983); PAUL R. MENDES-FLOHR and JEHUDA REINHARZ (eds.), The Jew in the Modern World (1980); DAN ROSS, Acts of Faith: A Journey to the Fringes of Jewish Identity (1982).

6. Judaic literature:

B. GERHARDSSON, Memory and Manuscript (1961), contains a description of the methods and techniques by which the oral tradition was transmitted. H.L. STRACK, Introduction to the Talmud and Midrash (1931); and M. MIELZINER, Introduction to the Talmud, 4th ed. (1968), are still the best introductions for the general reader. The latter is particularly helpful in explaining Talmudic dialectic terminology and debate. J. BOWKER, The Targums and Rabbinic Literature (1969); and E. DEUTSCH, The Talmud (1895), are both descriptions of the Talmud, the former concentrating upon Talmudic literary compilations and the latter upon Talmudic content. The introduction of J. GOLDIN, The Living Talmud (1957), contains a vivid description of Talmudic debate. C. ALBECK, Introduction to the Talmud, in Hebrew (1969); and Z.H. CHAJES, The Student's Guide Through the Talmud (Eng. trans. 1952), are more advanced introductions, the former analytical and scientific and the latter representing the traditional view. J. NEUSNER (ed.), The Formation of the Babylonian Talmud (1970), contains summaries of some research by modern scholars on the question of how the Talmud was formed. L. GINZBERG, "Introduction to the Talmud," in A Commentary on the Palestinian Talmud, vol. 1 (1941), is the only introduction to the Palestinian Talmud available in the English language. L. FINKELSTEIN, Akiba (1962), is a historical and sociological approach to the development of Halakha. See SAUL LIEBERMAN, op. cit., for the interrelationship between the ancient rabbinic world and its Gentile environment. B. COHEN, Jewish and Roman Law, 2 vol. (1966); and I. HERZOG, The Main Institutions of Jewish Law, 2 vol. (1966-67), are the best English descriptions of Jewish law. J. Z. LAUTERBACH, Rabbinic Essays (1951); and E.E. URBACH, The Sages: Their Concepts and Beliefs, in Hebrew (1969), cover the major aspects of rabbinic theology. I. HEINEMANN, Paths of the Aggadah, in Hebrew (1970); M. KADUSHIN, The Rabbinic Mind, 3rd ed. (1972); and D. BEN AMOS, Narrative Forms of the Haggadah: Structural Analysis (1969), discuss Haggadic methods, forms, concepts, and thinking. L. ZUNZ, Die Gottesdienstlichen Vorträge der Juden (1892; updated Hebrew translation, 1950), is a thorough historical survey of Haggadic literature. D. NOY, Motif-Index of the Talmudic-Midrashic literature (1954); J.J. SLOTKI, Index Volume to the Soncino Talmud (1952); M. GASTER, The Exempla of the Rabbis (1924, rev. ed. 1968); and C.G. MONTEFIORE and H. LOEWE, A Rabbinic Anthology (1938), are very helpful as reference guides; while W.O.E. OESTERLEY, H. LOEWE, and E.I.J. ROSENTHAL, Judaism and Christianity, rev. ed. (1969); and C. MERCHAVIA, The Church Versus Talmudic and Midrashic Literature, in Hebrew (1970), describe the relationship between the church and rabbinic Judaism. E.R. BEVAN and C. SINGER (eds.), The Legacy of Israel (1927), deals with the influence of Judaism on world culture. Extensive bibliographies may be found in the works of Gerhardsson, Mielziner, Bowker, and Ben Amos.
