Joel Kraemer is an erudite scholar who has devoted a lifetime to the mastery of Maimonides’ life and works. His book, densely packed with valuable information, is the culmination of many years of research and writing. While the interpretive errors are his alone, primary blame for its serious literary defects must be assigned to a press whose editors were so impressed by the author’s renown that they trusted him not wisely but too well.


Allan Nadler is a professor of religious studies and director of the Jewish Studies Program at Drew University.
