The newest volume of the annual Studies in Contemporary Jewry series features the major and rapid changes undergone by Sephardic Jewry in the last fifty years, drawing on essays from the fields of demography, history, political science, literature, sociology, gender studies, and anthropology. The themes of the symposium papers include identity, manifested in the emergence and increasingly wide usage of Mizrahi in place of Sephardic; the invigoration of Sephardic Judaism; and the emergence of Sephardic politics in Israeli politics; and the tensions between Sephardim and Ashkenazim. As is standard for the series, this volume contains review essays and book reviews.
