Book Reviews

'This illuminating biography makes a significant contribution to Australian history, politics and culture.' -Emeritus Professor Konrad Kwiet, Resident Historian at the Sydney Jewish Museum

'Few leaders are endowed with the vision and ability to transform their society. One such catalyst of change was Dr Fanny Reading ...' -Professor Andrew Markus, Emeritus Professor of Monash University's Australian Centre for Jewish Civilisation

'Sarzin's book, a labor of love, is a precious gift - not only to a great woman whose legacy has justly been restored but especially to readers, who will emerge with a greater knowledge of critical chapters in Jewish and Australian history, and an appreciation for someone they can cherish as a role model and source of inspiration.' -Dr Daniel Polisar, Executive Vice-President, Shalem College, Jerusalem
