Yisrael Ba-amim, by Isaac F. Baer
Professor Baer of the Hebrew University, the distinguished medievalist and authority on Spain and Spanish Jewry, now is chiefly interested in early Rabbinic Judaism and Christianity. Yisrael ba-amim, based on his lectures to undergraduates, is paralleled by a series of studies that have been appearing in the Historical Society of Israel’s quarterly Zion, of which he is an editor. It is a remarkable document, whether as a work of scholarship about the past or as a transparent prescription for the right nurture of the Israeli ethos in the present and future. It is also well printed, written in straightforward Hebrew, and equipped with a solid technical apparatus.
