"Lupovitch organizes the book into three sections corresponding to the phases in the development of noble-Jewish relations. In the first period, from the origins of organized Jewish life in Miskolc until the cholera epidemic of 1831, Jews were primarily economic partners of the nobility. In the second period, Jews became administrative allies of the nobility as well. Finally, from the Jewish emancipation debates of the 1840s through the Miskolc Jewish community's affiliation with moderate Orthodoxy in 1878 and beyond, Jews aided the nobility in the promotion of the Magyar national movement in the Kingdom of Hungary, an essential aspect of their citizenship in the multinational state."
