Described in this abstract are the second and third parts of three annotated bibliographies comprising a series of available materials on the Jewish experience. The bibliographies, devoted essentially to secular Jewish studies, are designed to make students culturally aware of the rich and pluralistic cultural heritage of America through the Jewish experience. Part 2 focuses on the available educational resources which enhance understanding of the Jewish culture and religion. Arranged by subject area, it lists books under the categories of reference, history and religion, sociology, intergroup relations, biography and autobiography, literature, and fiction. Part 3 focuses on Israel as well as other Jewish communities throughout the world. Arranged by geographical areas, it comprises an informative guide to a world tour of Jewish communities in Israel, Asia, Australia, Austria, Canada, England, France, Germany, Latin America, and the Soviet Union and Satellites. Within the geographic and subject categories, works are arranged alphabetically by authors. Materials date from the 1940s to 1971, with the majority of the works written in the late 1960s and early 1970s. Not described here is Part 1 of the series, "World Jewish History, Religion, and Culture: A Graded, Annotated Bibliography for Grades 7-12," which is out of print. (Author/JR)
