Frederic Brenner has spent the last twenty-five years travelling the world to document the lives of Jews in more than forty countries on five continents to create the first visual anthology of the Jewish Diaspora. This landmark, two-volume, 512-page book of photographs and essays reflects that journey, and captures the scope and dynamism of one of the world's oldest, most diverse communities, challenging stereotypes held by Jews and non-Jews alike. Volume 1 is a collection of 264 of Brenner's more than 80,000 photographs. Witty, sad, moving, evocative they document a world that no longer exists as well as a new, vibrant world of Jewish life at the beginning of the twenty-first century. Volume 2 reproduces 60 of the photographs, along with commentaries by leading contemporary intellectuals, as an invitation to explore and interpret the many different issues at the core of the photographs. The contributors include, Andre Aciman, Tsvi Blanchard, Jacques Derrida, Carlos Fuentes, Stephen Greenblatt, Elfriede Jelinek, Julius Lester, George Steiner and Michael Zand.
