Exclusiveness and Tolerance: Studies in Jewish-Gentile Relations in Medieval and Modern Times

Excerpt

The material for this book has been collected over a period of many years. The decision to write it in its present form, and to publish it first in English, was made during my stay in Manchester at the Institute of Jewish Studies where I served as guest lecturer during the academic year 1956-7. The general conception of the work, as well as the working out of details, profited from my close contact with Professor A. Altmann, the then Director of the Institute.

After the transfer of the Institute to University College London, Mr. J. G. Weiss, M.A., the new Director of the Institute, bestowed upon the book the benefit of his unremitting scrutiny.

I am indebted to the many people who assisted me in stylizing and editing the work, the more so since my own knowledge of English would not have permitted me to accomplish the task unaided. My thanks go to all those who gave me advice and help but who are too numerous to mention by name. My special thanks go to Mr. D. Cohen, Mrs. G. Frankel, and Miss A. Mittwoch of London; Dr. S. Applebaum, Mrs. E. Erlich, and Mrs. Batia Rabin of Jerusalem; and to my colleague Professor Chaim Rabin of the Hebrew University for translating some of the Hebrew texts.

The preparation of this book was greatly helped by the support of the cultural funds of the Conference of Jewish Material Claims Against Germany.
