About this product
- DescriptionTracing the introduction of coffee into Europe, Robert Liberles challenges long-held assumptions about early modern Jewish history and shows how the Jews harnessed an invation that enriched their personal, religious, social, and ecomic lives. Focusing on Jewish society in Germany in the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries, and using coffee as a key to understanding social change, Liberles analyzes German rabbinic rulings on coffee, Jewish consumption patterns, the commercial importance of coffee for various social strata, differences based on gender, and the efforts of German authorities to restrict Jewish trade in coffee, as well as the integration of Jews into society.
- Author BiographyROBERT LIBERLES (1944-2012) held the David Berg and Family Chair in European History at Ben Gurion University in Beersheva.
