  • Space and Spatiality in Modern German-Jewish Historyby Simone Lässig; Miriam Rürup

    Berghahn Books 2017; US$ 34.95

    What makes a space Jewish? This wide-ranging volume revisits literal as well as metaphorical spaces in modern German history to examine the ways in which Jewishness has been attributed to them both within and outside of Jewish communities, and what the implications have been across different eras and social contexts. Working from an expansive concept... more...

  • Yom Kippurby Peter Baxter

    Pen and Sword 2017; US$ 12.58

    It is 25 years since the end of the Cold War, now a generation old. It began over 75 years ago, in 1944—long before the last shots of the Second World War had echoed across the wastelands of Eastern Europe—with the brutal Greek Civil War. The battle lines are no longer drawn, but they linger on, unwittingly or not, in conflict zones such... more...

  • Prayer as Divine Experience in 4 Ezra and John’s Apocalypseby David Seal

    Hamilton Books 2017; US$ 57.00

  • Inconsistency in the Torahby Joshua A. Berman

    Oxford University Press 2017; US$ 97.99

    Rather than viewing inconsistencies in the Torah as signs of revision, this book identifies precursors for these phenomena in ancient Near Eastern writings. It claims that Enlightenment and German historicist influences corrupted critical study of the Bible, and calls for a return to the more modest agenda set out by Spinoza. more...

  • Who Will Lead Us?by Samuel C. Heilman

    University of California Press 2017; US$ 29.95

    Hasidism, a movement many believed had passed its golden age, has had an extraordinary revival since it was nearly decimated in the Holocaust and repressed in the Soviet Union. Hasidic communities, now settled primarily in North America and Israel, have reversed the losses they suffered and are growing exponentially. With powerful attachments to the... more...

  • Nationalizing Judaismby David Ohana; Ari Barell; Michael Feige

    Lexington Books 2017; US$ 80.00

This book is the first comprehensive academic study of their struggle, placing it in a comparative and theoretical context of wider religion-state conflicts and... more...
