In shedding new light on the process of Jewish integration in late 18th-century Europe, Dubin (religion and biblical literature, Smith College) focuses on Trieste, Italy rather than on Berlin and Paris as typically emphasized in discussions of Haskalah (Enlightenment) Jews. The author details how this minority fared under the civil toleration policies of the Hapsburg rulers, Maria Theresa and Joseph II. Includes illustrations of the Scuola Grande synagogue and other points of interest. Reference materials constitute nearly 100 pages. Annotation copyrighted by Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
