What if the Exodus had never happened? What if the Jews of Spain
had not been expelled in 1492? What if Eastern European Jews had
never been confined to the Russian Pale of Settlement? What if
Adolf Hitler had been assassinated in 1939? What if a Jewish state
had been established in Uganda instead of Palestine? Gavriel D.
Rosenfeld's pioneering anthology examines how these and other
counterfactual questions would have affected the course of Jewish
history. Featuring essays by sixteen distinguished scholars in the
field of Jewish Studies, What Ifs of Jewish History is the first
volume to systematically apply counterfactual reasoning to the
Jewish past. Written in a variety of narrative styles, ranging from
the analytical to the literary, the essays cover three thousand
years of dramatic events and invite readers to indulge their
imaginations and explore how the course of Jewish history might
have been different.
