Praise for the French edition:

"The most complete and thorough historical synthesis ever written in a European language on the Jewish communities of the Balkans and Turkey."—Michel Abitbol, L'arche

"A rich and too-little-known history that successfully avoids twin snares: the myth of the irreparable decadence of oriental Judaism and the myth of the lost golden age of Spain."—Alain Dieckhoff, Les Nouveaux Cahiers

"The authors illuminate the variety of responses—between the poles of westernizing and holding onto tradition—offered by these Jewish societies of the Levantine Sephardi cultural area to the processes of modernization, as well as their startling receptivity to the new ideologies of zionism and socialism that marked the end of the nineteenth century." —Annales
