In Re-Inventing the Jewish Past: European Jewish Intellectuals and the Zionist Return to History, David N. Myers explores a fascinating and untold chapter in modern Jewish intellectual history: the role of the first generation of Jewish scholars at the Hebrew University in Jerusalem in establishing Jewish studies within the framework of a Jewish national university. Re-Inventing the Jewish Past will be of interest to students of Jewish, European, and Middle Eastern history, as well as to scholars engaged in the study of diasporas, comparative nationalism, and the relationship between history and memory.
