Summary, etc.:
"With the nineteenth century came new freedom for European Jews. Enjoying an integration that had been denied since the Middle Ages, they now wrestled with the form and degree of that integration in all areas of their lives. The writings focus on Jewish musicology, biography, historical surveys, secular music and those songs performed in the synagogue"--Provided by publisher.
