Description
(Winner of the 2008 Judaica Reference Award from the Association of Jewish Libraries) This unprecedented reference work systematically represents the history and culture of Eastern European Jews from their first settlement in the region to the present day. More than 1800 alphabetical entries, with 1100 black and white illustrations and maps and 57 color plates, encompass a vast range of topics, including religion, folklore, politics, art, music, theater, language and literature, places, organizations, intellectual movements, and important figures.

"More than accessible, the YIVO Encyclopedia is so compulsively browsable that you can disappear within its pages for hours without a trace.... [It] accomplishes exactly what it set out to do, providing the most complete picture of this world we are ever likely to get. Anyone with an interest in culture, language, religion and politics will be fascinated by what's between its covers; if your family comes from that part of the world, this is as close as you will ever come to truly possessing your past."LATimes
