Significantly, the volume also includes eleven essays from internationallly renowned scholars that provide an important and useful overview of Jewish history and the development of Judaism, and explore central themes in Jewish Studies that cut across historical periods and offer important opportunities to track significant developments across Jewish experiences. In addition to an annotated bibliography to help orient students and researchers, the volume includes a series of indispensable research tools, including a chronology, maps, and an extensive glossary of key terms and concepts necessary as one engages various fields within Jewish Studies.
