For a group of people so limited in number, the Jewish community has had a huge impact on both global events and local politics. In this vibrant new look at Judaism, sociologist and cultural critic Keith Kahn-Harris provides a remarkably sharp insight into this history, and particularly the diverse Jewish communities (and diverse ideas of Jewishness) that exist today.


The first impression is visually attractive and the layout of chapters, spiced with photographs and summary paragraphs, inviting to the reader. It has lighter elements and is well written, informative and thought-provoking and the excellent reading list whets the appetite for more in-depth study.

This book provides a most helpful compendium of basics about Judaism and Jewishness.

Judaism:All that Matters really does cover everything.
Kahn-Harris has produced a stimulating read that covers the very breadth of Judaism, no mean feat in such a compact work; he shies away from nothing, controversies, divisions and conflicts. There are so many introductions to Judaism, but for those who want an up-to-date, honest and informative volume then this is as good a place to start as anywhere.
Methodist Recorder
His understanding of the contemporary Jewish work is often spot on, and he communicates this understanding in a clear and engaging way.
