"A collection of incisive essays that present a complex portrait of intellectual and sociological change, linking the two in convincing fashion."--Deborah Dash Moore, Journal of Jewish Studies "David Hollinger's new collection of essays is best compared to a string of pearls. Each of the eight pieces is a self-contained gem of clear prose, meticulous scholarship, and ingenious conjecture. Yet all are strung along a single thread, aptly indicated by the book's title, Science, Jews, and Secular Culture... This is a smart, timely, and thoroughly enjoyable book."--Suzanne Klingenstein, The Journal of American History "This is a first-rate treatment of a pivotal change in American history."--Jonathan Dorfman, Washington Post Book World
