A Short History of Jewish Ethics traces the development of Jewish moral concepts and ethical reflection from its Biblical roots to the present day.
Alan Mittleman is Professor of Jewish Thought at the Jewish Theological Seminary in New York City. His books include Hope in a Democratic Age (2009) and The Scepter Shall Not Depart from Judah (2000). Mittleman's work seeks to bring Jewish thought into a constructive conversation with ethics, political theory, and philosophy of religion.
"For those with some background, Mittleman provides a thoughtful tour through a number of seminal moments in Jewish ethical reflection. Summing Up: Recommended. Some advanced undergraduates, graduate students, and researchers/faculty. (Choice, 1 July 2012)"[It] admirably recounts the Jewish tradition of ethical inquiry from its biblical beginnings until today. Mittleman is thoroughly at home in the primary sources and secondary literature. He is also an expert on contemporary moral philosophy, which enables him to contextualize Jewish thought within a wider framework of ethical theory ... He covers a vast amount of information in 200 pages, and the reader who perseveres will learn much about the broad sweep of Jewish ethical thinking." (Jewish Ideas Daily)
