With studies of Jewish communities in port cities ranging from sixteenth century Livorno to modern Singapore, this book develops and extends the concept of the port Jew. It explores the concepts of diaspora and identity, probes the links between commerce and inter-communal relations, and maps the contours of language, culture, and community.
