Leon Shapiro, The History of ORT: A Jewish Movement for Social Change, 2nd ed., 2010.

The History of ORT viewed from a three-layered perspective: 1) stable elements visible throughout its development; 2) moving patterns appearing here and there, depending on time; and 3) adaptation and readjustment to meet changing needs. Shapiro's methodical approach shows how central ORT's ideas are to the multitude of Jewish communities which strive to meet the compelling needs of the Jewish people. Second edition [first published 1980] with a new foreword by David Cesarani, London: World ORT, 2010.
