Chapter Summary

This front matter section of the book Simon Dubnow's "New Judaism": Diaspora Nationalism and the World History of the Jews contains the table of contents, preface and a note on abbreviations. Dubnow's intellectual biography illustrates a decisive shift in nineteenth-century Jewish thought from preoccupation with the universalistic teachings of Judaism to the particularistic nature of the Jewish people. The geographical concentration went hand-in-hand with social isolation. Throughout much of the nineteenth century the Jewish masses acted as middlemen between the peasants and nobles or served the Jewish community and worked, for the most part, as tailors, cobblers, jewelers, wagoners, merchants, and taverners.

Keywords: Jewish community; judaism; Simon Dubnow
