Jewish Politics in Spinoza's Amsterdam

«

‘This work seeks to integrate three arenas that are usually dealt with separately: early modern European political thought, Portuguese-Jewish political and religious self-conceptualization, and Jewish messianism. The author is especially skilful in connecting the seventeenth-century Jewish authors she discusses with the concerns of modern and contemporary Jews.’

Miriam Bodian, University of Texas at Austin

‘The author has very intelligently approached the important question of Dutch Sephardi communal political consciousness in the seventeenth century by examining the community’s constitution in the light of comments by a series of prominent lay leaders. She shows a good knowledge of the community sources and of the Spanish and Portuguese texts and provides a richly detailed analysis which is valuable and of considerable significance also in the context of other major Jewish communities in Western Europe, Italy, and the Ottoman Empire. Her work considerably enriches our perspective.’

Jonathan Israel, Institute of Advanced Studies, Princeton

'Jewish Politics in Spinoza’s Amsterdam takes readers on a compelling journey through the world of European politics, Jewish politics, and the manifold ways they intersected in the second half of the seventeenth century… This book will be of tremendous interest and importance to scholars of early modern Jewish history, and the broader history of European political thought in the seventeenth century, and promises to inspire future work in numerous exciting directions.' Benjamin E. Fisher, Studia Rosenthaliana

‘Albert draws on a wide variety of Jewish and non-Jewish religious and philosophical sources. Maimonides, Machiavelli, Justus Lipsius, Locke and Dutch republicans such as the de la Court brothers all make cameo appearances. She thereby provides us with a rich, original and illuminating perspective on this fascinating and consequential moment in Jewish history, which she justifiably regards as a ‘watershed’ moment in European political thought.’ Steven Nadler, Literary Review
