This essay catalogues and contextualizes the different meanings of what was known as “Jewish emancipation” across Europe over the course of the long nineteenth century, emphasizing the trade-offs made by various communities in exchange for legal and political recognition by the state. Sorkin emphasizes the need to study Jewish citizenship and emancipation both locally and comparatively.
