Pre-lim list # one

I know many of you wonder why it appears I have such a boring life. You're also probably thinking that being a graduate students probably isn't at difficult or time consuming as I make it out to be. For you, I am posting one (ONE) of the four (FOUR) different pre-lim lists that I have. I also think this is probably the second to the shortest list, or the shortest: I don't remember which. Although, section six will probably be largely scrapped. I have read almost everything on this list. That means there's probably only 4 or 5 items I have not read.

For your reading pleasure, I present my Modern European Jewish History pre-lim list.
If you have any questions, please feel free to ask. That's why I want to be a professor: to enlighten people!
