Frank Jacob, Sebastian Kunze (eds.), Jewish Radicalisms: Historical Perspectives on a Phenomenon of Global Modernity, de Gruyter Oldenbourg, 2020
Radical thoughts and acts are merely a non-conformist attitude; they are usually marginal and are directed against the ruling society. Thereby, these radical thoughts and acts could be classified as politcally left or right, progressive or reactionary. The volume wants to sharpen the term “Jewish Radicalism” and provide different perspectives on the historical phenomenon and its dimensions.
