This front matter section of the book "The Tragic Couple": Encounters Between Jews and Jesuits contains the table of contents, acknowledgements, list of illustrations and a list of contributors. The book examines the complex interactions between Jesuits and Jews from the early modern period in Europe and Asia through the twentieth century. It focuses on a new paradigm for perceiving Jesuit-converso encounters in early modern Portugal and the move toward a positive relationship. The book discusses the suppression of the Society of Jesus and Jewish emancipation, Jesuit influence on Italian Jewish culture and relation between Jesuits and Jews in China. It investigates how images and articles do seek to portray a connection between priests, Jews, and communists. The book talks about French conflicts, Italian struggles, and American contrasts in relations between Jesuits and Jews, before, during, and following the Holocaust.
