    One thought on “Jewish Radicals: A Documentary Reader”

    1. In general I was pleased with this book. The subject is something very interesting and the documents chosen to illustrate Jewish radicalism were quite interesting. I liked most of the document but there were a few I wasn't too interested in though all were easy to read, nothing too complicated. Overall I would recommend this book.
