Full description of the book The Genius of the Jewish Joke:

The Genius of the Jewish Joke focuses on what is distinctive and unusual about Jewish jokes and Jewish humor. Jewish humor is humor by Jews and about Jews, in whatever medium this humor is found; jokes are defi ned as short stories, meant to amuse, with a punch line, though Jewish humor exists in many other forms-riddles, comic defi nitions, parodies-as well. The book makes a "radical" suggestion about the origin of Jewish humor-namely, that Sarah and Abraham's relation to God, and the name of their son Isaac (which, in Hebrew, means laughter), recognizes a PDF special affi nity in Jews for humor. Abraham does not sacrifi ce Isaac (humor) and, thus, humor and the Jews are linked early in Jewish history.
