Salo W. Baron is one of the greatest Jewish historians of the 20th century. In the most important work of his life using a wide historical context he step by step debunks the traditional conception of the Jewish history, which he calls "the theory of tears". Jewish history, Baron claims, is not confided to constant persecution and crying over the victims - the most characteristic feature of this nation is the ability to survive and flourish despite the persecution. "Social and Religious History of the Jews" is one of the greatest works on Jewish history, which in a way determined the development of the modern Jewish historiography.
