Summary
Since the Enlightenment, interpreters of religion in Western culture have typically classified Judaism above other non-Christian religions. Though considered inferior to Christianity, Judaism nontheless could not be grouped with the "savage" religions. The Savage in Judaism exposes and challenges the opposition between Judaism and "savage" religions that has shaped the conceptualization and study of Judaism in the modern period. --From publisher's description
