Adam Sutcliffe is Chaim Lopata Assistant Professor of European Jewish History at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.
'... passionate, well informed and eloquent ...' Anthony Grafton, The New York Review of Books 'Adam Sutcliffe's book...shows immense learning, elegant prose, and a nuanced and sophisticated understanding of the Enlightenment project as well as the place of Judaism in the consciousness of its primary and less primary exponents.' David Ruderman in the Jewish Quarterly Review 'Not only new but startling.' Sander Gilman in The Chronicle of Higher Education 'In keeping with the best tradition of the history of ideas, Sutcliffe's impressive, comprehensive study methodically presents many texts, scholars and thinkers ... Sutcliffe's book is an important work for students of the Enlightenment, and one that makes a significant contribution to the intellectual history of Europe in the early modern era. A scholarly, profound and thought-provoking book, it is the best treatment until now of the varied issues by the subject of Judaism and the Enlightenment.' European History Quarterly
