'We thought this an intriguing book giving us a concise statement in the following areas: the presentation of engaging biographical case studies that expand knowledge of key historical figures while contributing to larger questions about Jews and law; engaging legal specialists, historians, and other scholars interested in the questions of religion, ethnicity, politics, and international law; and illuminating the state of the field, and the emerging new directions in legal history, international law, and society studies.' Elizabeth Robson and Phillip Taylor, The Barrister
'... this book has to be welcomed by historians as well as by jurists and scholars of international law, representing for all of them a priceless source of inspiration for further research in such an important field.' G. Motta, European History Quarterly
