Books That Should Be Written II

1. Who Wrote Tosfos?

The stories of the different personalities, approaches, locations and political considerations that accumulated over time into the text(s) with which every student of Talmud is familiar. Requires a flair for drama and at least two semesters with Dr. Haym Soloveitchik.

2. Torah Cliffs-Notes

Cliffs-Notes style summaries and analyses of classic works of the Rishonim (e.g. The Kuzari).

3. Jewish and General History Textbooks

Textbooks that fully cover both the Jewish and general history of a given era, so that history classes can be integrated and only one textbook be used. History here should be understood as including the use of all available historical material.
