Description

Probably the most comprehensive study of Yiddish and its effect on language, people and history which has ever been compiled. This massive work has covers: Socio-historical Perspective, Orthodoxy, Modern Movements, Historic Moments. Institutions for formal study, shifts in language (geographically as a result of world events, its influence in drama, theatre, poetry, media and in daily life. Fishman's work is overwhelming in its scope, exacting in its scholarship, and a miracle of coalition representing a life-time study. A gift to KK library from Gella and Shikl after their visit to us in the early spring of 2007. We are privileged to have met them and to have this valuable work.
