This is a very essential and long-awaited work about an important ancient part of the Jewish world little-known by many. A superbly organized book. -- William M. Brinner This timely volume addresses an important topic that has recently risen to the fore amidst general ignorance: the lives of the Jews of Muslim lands during the last 200 years... This is a book that should be a part of everyone's personal library. Sephardim Today Perhaps no single volume encompasses the history of Jews in the Muslim world with quite the comprehensive sweep and topical richness as The Jews of the Middle East and North Africa in Modern Times. -- Michael Skakun The Jewish Press Well researched and clearly written, the book is a major contribution to the field, and appropriate for academic, public and center libraries as well as for individuals.
