Jewish Masochism from Abraham the Patriarch to Woody Allen and Other Essays

Manfred Gerstenfeld

This anthology of essays, book reviews and interviews provides a broad insight into Manfred Gerstenfeld’s unique renaissance personality. It encompasses the extensive canvas of contemporary Jewry and the challenges it faces. It also includes some essays on subjects related to Gerstenfeld’s other than exclusively Jewish interests such as architecture, science and the environment which reflect the breadth of his knowledge and scholarship.
