Book Reviews This is of course not a new theme, but it is fleshed' out nicely by Anita Bunyan in her essay analyzing the Kolnische Zeitung and its position on Emancipation in the Vormarz years. She concludes by asserting that religious conformity was no longer a prerequisite for citizenship, but cultural conformity was demanded ofJews if they wished to be assimilated into Prussian society (p. 51). The debate about Emancipation is carried further by Keith Pickus in his splendid essay on the Freie Wissenschaftliche Vereinigung. Despite the efforts of a student organization to promote Jewish emancipation and equality in a sea of antisemitism, Jews still found themselves forced to form their own student groups because of the social isolation extant at German universities. "The establishment of Jewish student associations," Pickus writes, "can be seen as an attempt by German-Jewish university students to reconcile the dialectical tension resulting from being a highly acculturated, but still socially segregated, segment of the student body" (p. SO). There is no question that the Jews kept their part of the bargain concerning emancipation, but unfortunately the same measure and standards for citizenship demanqed by the nineteenth-century nationalists were ignored by the racial requirements
