The Littman E-Library of Jewish Civilization

Founded by Louis Littman in memory of his father to explore, explain, and perpetuate the Jewish heritage, the Littman Library of Jewish Civilization published its first book in 1965. It has gone on to publish many highly regarded titles, and has established a reputation as one of the world’s leading publishers in the field. In 2017 Littman formed a publishing partnership with Liverpool University Press, which assumed responsibility for the sales, marketing, and distribution of its titles.

Liverpool University Press is delighted to present essential reading from this collection on a fully searchable digital platform for the first time, as the Littman E-Library of Jewish Civilization.
