This study of contemporary crypto-Jews?descendants of European Jews forced to convert to Christianity during the Spanish Inquisition?traces the group's history of clandestinely conducting their faith and their present-day efforts to reclaim their past. Janet Liebman Jacobs masterfully combines historical and social scientific theory to fashion a brilliant analysis of hidden ancestry and the transformation of religious and ethnic identity.
