Now updated with a fresh new look! With more than 50,000 entries, the Webster's New World� Hebrew Dictionary is a bilingual dictionary requiring no prior knowledge of Hebrew. Hebrew entry words in the Hebrew-English part of the dictionary are presented in Latin alphabetical order familiar to English speakers. This is made possible by presenting each Hebrew word first in a phonetic transliteration using the Latin alphabet, followed by the proper Hebrew spelling. Entries in the English-Hebrew section are translated into Hebrew and then a phonetic Latin translation.

A Mark Twain scholar. An African American philosopher. A lesbian feminist literary critic. A Cuban-American anthropologist. A German immigrant to the United States. A professor of English at a Jesuit university. All share their reflections on the interconnectedness of identities and ideas in People of the Book, the first collection in which Jewish-American scholars examine how their Jewishness has shaped and influenced their intellectual endeavors, and how their intellectual work has deepened their sense of themselves as Jews. The contributors are highly productive and respected Jewish-American scholars, critics, and teachers from departments of English, history, American studies, Romance literature, Slavic studies, art, women's studies, comparative literature, anthropology, Judaic studies, and philosophy. Nearly an equal mix of men and women, the authors of these analytical and autobiographical essays include white Jews and black Jews; orthodox, conservative, reform, and totally secular Jews; Jews by birth and Jews by conversion; heterosexual Jews and homosexual Jews; past presidents of the Modern Language Association and American Studies Association and young scholars at the start of their careers.
