Summary
  • The Jewish Ethic and the Spirit of Socialism is an investigation into the appeal of socialist politics to alienated bourgeois German Jews during the Wilhelmine period, 1871-1918.

  • In the course of their assimilation into German society, many Jews became estranged from Judaism, but still confronted anti-Semitism as a barrier to their complete acceptance by Gentiles. In addition, the messianic impulse, secularized out of its origins in Judaism proper, entered into the constitution of socialist ideology and resonated to Jews with special ardor
