Description: This four-volume collective project by a team of leading scholars offers a vivid portrait of Jewish history in German-speaking countries over nearly four centuries. The series is sponsored by the Leo Baeck Institute, established in 1955 in Jerusalem, London, and New York for the purpose of advancing scholarship on the Jews in German-speaking lands. Emancipation and Acculturation, 1780-1871 focuses on a period of political, economic, and social change that permanently transformed German Jewry.

The book begins with Christian Wilhelm Dohm's programmatic work On the Civil Improvement of the Jews and Habsburg Emperor Joseph II's toleration edicts, two monumental events that began the process leading to Jewish civil equality. The volume explores the long struggle for emancipation; how Jews dealt with German Christianity's insistent denial of Judaism's viability; and now leading Jewish writers and intellectuals expressed the ambiguities of Jewishness in Germany.

Accessible to general readers and students, this book is an indispensable resource for understanding the complex process by which Jews became an integral part of the modern world.
