Judaism Musical and Unmusical by Michael P. Steinberg Judaism Musical and Unmusical, Paperback (February 2008)

Modernity gave rise to a Jewish consciousness that has increasingly distanced itself from the sacred in favor of worldliness and secularity. This book traces the formulation of this secular Jewishness from its Enlightenment roots through the twentieth century to explore the variations of modern Jewish experience in central Europe and beyond.

Listening to Reason by Michael P. Steinberg Listening to Reason, Paperback (March 2006)

Reveals the pivotal role of music - musical works and musical culture - in debates about society, self, and culture that forged European modernity through the 'long nineteenth century'. This book argues that from the late 1700s to the early 1900s, music not only reflected but also embodied modern subjectivity.
