Chapter Summary

This front matter section of the book Traditional Society in Transition: The Yemeni Jewish Experience contains the table of contents and acknowledgements. The book examines the Yemeni Jewish community from the late nineteenth century until the middle of the twentieth century. It first looks at this community when it was still a traditional, patriarchal society that lived its life according to religious law and in adherence to the codes of a society which was largely untouched by the changes of the industrial world. This mostly rural society lived among the Yemeni tribes, whose urban centers were small in relation to the concentrations in agricultural areas, and it accepted much of the ethos of the host society.

Keywords: patriarchal society; religious law; Yemeni Jewish community
