The Life and Times of Jehudah Halevi, by Rudolf Kayser
This is a thoroughly unsatisfactory book, badly translated from the German. It is full of pretentious and untenable generalizations, repetitions, confusions, half-truths, misunderstandings, and downright errors. The author admits in his introduction that his book “does not claim to be a learned tome,” but the confession hardly prepares us for the muddled re-hash of secondary sources that follows.
