David Ruderman for Sale!
Well, not exactly. While perusing through the latest New Republic with its new look, I came across an advertisement for a series of 24 lectures of 1/2 hour length by Prof. David Ruderman titled “Between Cross and Crescent: Jewish Civilization from Mohammed to Spinoza”. This series is available on DVD, audio CD or audiotape and on sale only until March 29 (I think that it must be ordered before March 29) for the low price of DVD-$69.95, CD-$49.95, and audiotape-$34.95. Ruderman is a first-rate scholar and author or editor of important works such as Jewish Thought and Scientific Discovery in Early Modern Europe and Essential Papers on Jewish Culture in Renaissance and Baroque Italy. This series of lectures is available from here.
