Modern Jewries and the Imperial Imagination

By Sarah Stein

Association for Jewish Studies (AJS), Fall 2005

The author reviews the ways in which the academic study of Jewish populations overlaps, or should overlap, with the study of the phenomenon of empire. Some promising lines of inquiry are impeded, the author explains, by a myth of Jewish powerlessness, and others by a (faulty) assumption that contiguous empires cannot be compared with transcontinental empires. The author traces these ideas through many examples of modern scholarship in these areas.
