The Jewish Economic Elite: Making Modern Europe

This rich transnational history traces Jewish Ashkenazi families as they moved across Europe and established new commercial and entrepreneurial networks as they went. It balances economic history with elaborate discussions of Jewish marriage patterns, women’s economic activity, and intimate family life. Following their travels from Amsterdam to Warsaw, the book opens a multifaceted window into the lives, relationships, and changing conditions of economic activity of a new Jewish mercantile elite.
