ACKNOWLEDGMENTS

AT the outset I should like to express my deep gratitude and indebtedness to the late Mr. Maurice Simon, M.A., who co-operated with me from the very beginning throughout the publication of this work. Mr. Simon was a great master in the translation of classical Jewish works into the English language and he was possessed of a superb English style. By his passing Anglo-Jewry has lost one of its most respected and beloved scholars. It is a source of deep grief to me that Maurice Simon did not live to see the publication of this work, with which he was so happy to be associated.

My thanks are further due to Mr. Michael Wallach, B.Sc., who has translated the following essays: Jewish Schooling, Religious Instruction, and On the Place of Ethical Training in School Education; to Hannah Sohn, B.A., for her translation of the "Educational Talks". I am also grateful to Rabbi Dr. Joseph Rabbinowitz, Mr. J. M. Shaftesley, B.A., F.R.S.A., Mr. Hermann Schwab, and Mr. J. H. Taylor, B.A., for many helpful suggestions; to Mr. Heinrich Eisemann for permission to make use of his bibliography of the works of Hirsch; and to the Editor of "Orthodox Jewish Life" in New York for permission to reprint part of an essay of mine which had appeared previously in that magazine. Further, I should like to express my gratitude to Mr. S. M. Bloch and Mrs. T. Davidson, directors of the Soncino Press, for their unfailing courtesy and help in the course of the publication of this work; to Mrs. Cassie Cooper for undertaking the arduous task of preparing and compiling the index and for other valuable help; and finally to pay a tribute to the memory of the late Mr. Harold Vezey Strong, a former director of the Soncino Press and a non-Jewish lover of Jewish literature, for the constant encouragement which he gave me.

Special thanks are due to Mr. Arnold Oppenheimer for putting at my disposal the large collection of Hirschiana of the late Mr. Hermann Kramer.

I put on record gratefully also the financial help which I have received from the Jewish Material Claims Conference in New York and from a number of personal friends.
