In the 19th century, it was not only the middle-class in general but also a specifically Jewish middle-class which emerged. Using the social, cultural and art history perspectives as their basis, the authors of this volume examine the dissimilarities and the similarities of these two middle-class societies. They focus on the characteristics of the Jewish middle-class, its social, ideological, religious and private forms. What specific forms of socialization did the Jewish middle-class have, and what was its significance as far as the development of a general middle-class in Germany is concerned? The essays in this volume document how diverse the Jewish middle-class actually was and at the same time show the limiting factors which this minority came up against in Germany.
