Shlomo Sand responds to Martin Goodman’s recent review of The Invention of the Jewish People in the Times Literary Supplement. Goodman had neglected to mention that he was criticised in Shlomo’s book:
The least one might expect from an honest book reviewer is that he inform his readers when he is himself the subject of criticism of the book under review. However, Martin Goodman (February 26) has chosen not to do so. Against all standard conventions, he hides from his readers the fact that his ethnocentric approach to Jewish history was explicitly criticized in my book The Invention of the Jewish People.
