Description

Yiddish and Power surveys the social, linguistic and intellectual history of the Yiddish language within the traditional civilisation of Jewish Ashkenaz in central, and then in eastern Europe, and its interaction with the surrounding non-Jewish culture. It explores the various ways in which Yiddish has empowered masses and served political agendas.

Katz's book invites scholars of Yiddish and of vernacular languages generally, especially those spoken by minority peoples living in a diaspora, to think expansively about a language's potential to empower its speakers. In the case of Yiddish, this approach is key to considering the state of the language today and tracking its future. (Jeffrey Shandler, Journal of Jewish Languages, Vol. 4, 2016)
