Reckless Rites: Purim and the Legacy of Jewish Violence

By Elliott Horowitz

NEW paperback Historical accounts of Jewish violence - particularly against Christians - have long been explosive material. Some historians have distorted these records for anti-Semitic purposes. This book looks at both the history of Jewish violence since late antiquity and the ways in which generations of historians have grappled with that history.
