For those interested in things Jewish, the formidable literary critic D. G. Myers has provided a terrific guide to the 38 best Jewish books of 2011, ranging from Jewish history to thought to literature. I’ve long been an admirer of Myers, but I must admit I’m even more of one now, thanks to his conclusion that “Easily the best Jewish book of the past 12 months, though, is the posthumous selection of Irving Kristol's essays, gathered together under the titleThe Neoconservative Persuasion.”

But read Myers’s whole list—and then get to work on the books!
