PhD Reading List

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 trquevillon@uh.edu.

 

Thank you,
