I am a PhD student at the University of Houston, and I am trying to put together a Comprehensive Exam reading list for a field in Global Jewish history and a field on American Jewish history. For Global Jewish history I am trying to find the best books that deal with Jewish history on all 6 continents (including texts on Israeli history/studies) as well as studies of the Jewish diaspora as a whole. If anyone has any suggestions or reading lists you have used in the past, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
