    University of Chicago Press 2010; US$ 25.00

    Faithful Renderings reads translation history through the lens of Jewish–Christian difference and, conversely, views Jewish–Christian difference as an effect of translation. Subjecting translation to a theological-political analysis, Seidman asks how the charged Jewish–Christian relationship—and more particularly the dependence of Christianity on... more...

  • The Eighteenth-Century Language Text of Jüdischer Sprach-meisterby Jordan D Finkin

    The Edwin Mellen Press 2009; US$ 159.95

    Though little studied, this text is important not only for the fields of Yiddish literature and linguistics, where it offers a lengthy continuous text in a language lacking a particularly robust corpus, but also for the history of German-Jewish relations, highlighted by the irony of an anti-Semitic work preserving a Yiddish linguistic resource. The... more...
