    Port Campbell Press 2011; US$ 12.99

    The Five Walking Sticks' describes the life of Maurice Brodzky, a man who was very well known in Melbourne from 1885 to 1903.

    PM Press 2012; US$ 16.00

    Written from the maximum-security prison where he has lived for almost 30 years, this enlightening memoir chronicles the militant career of David Gilbert , a radical activist whose incarceration is due to his involvement in the 1981 Brinks robbery, an attempted expropriation that resulted in four deaths.

  • Studies in Medieval Jewish Intellectual and Social Historyby Elliot R. Wolfson; Lawrence H. Schiffman; David Engel

    BRILL 2012; US$ 176.00

    Thirteen leading scholars offer a fresh look at four key topics in medieval Jewish studies: the history of Jewish communities in Western Christendom, Jewish-Christian interactions in medieval Europe, medieval Jewish Biblical exegesis and religious literature, and historical representations of medieval Jewry. more...

  • New Jewsby Caryn S. Aviv; David Shneer

    NYU Press 2005; US$ 26.00

    For many contemporary Jews, Israel no longer serves as the Promised Land, the center of the Jewish universe and the place of final destination. In New Jews, Caryn Aviv and David Shneer provocatively argue that there is a new generation of Jews who don't consider themselves to be eternally wandering, forever outsiders within their communities and seeking... more...

  • The Fervent Embraceby Caitlin Carenen

    NYU Press 2012; US$ 55.00

    When Israel declared its independence in 1948, Harry Truman issued a memo recognizing the Israeli government within eleven minutes. Today, the U.S. and Israel continue on as partners in an at times controversial alliance—an alliance, many argue, that is powerfully influenced by the Christian Right. In  The Fervent Embrace , Caitlin Carenen chronicles... more...

  • The Shtetlby Steven T. Katz

    NYU Press 2006; US$ 26.00

    Dating from the sixteenth century, there were hundreds of shtetls—Jewish settlements—in Eastern Europe that were home to a large and compact population that differed from their gentile, mostly peasant neighbors in religion, occupation, language, and culture. The shtetls were different in important respects from previous types of Jewish settlements... more...

    Tanglewood Press 2011; US$ 8.99

    Eva Mozes Kor was just ten years old when she arrived in Auschwitz. While her parents and two older sisters were taken to the gas chambers, she and her twin, Miriam, were herded into the care of the man known as the Angel of Death, Dr. Josef Mengele.

  • Mobile Modernityby Todd S Presner

    Columbia University Press 2012; US$ 59.99

    Though the history of the German railway system is often associated with the transportation of Jews to labor and death camps, Todd Presner looks instead to the completion of the first German railway lines and their role in remapping the cultural geography and intellectual history of Germany's Jews. Treating the German railway as both an iconic symbol... more...

  • Hunted in Warsawby Henry G. Gribou

    McFarland & Company, Inc., Publishers 2012; US$ 35.00

    As a teenage Jew in Nazi-occupied Poland, Henry Gribou went to great lengths to conceal his true identity. Fluent in German and Polish, he acquired papers with a fake Polish birth certificate and became a master of slipping unobtrusively between the Jewish and non-Jewish worlds. In this chronicle of his remarkable double life, Gribou recounts his complicated... more...

  • Sheltered from the Swastikaby Peter Kory

    McFarland & Company, Inc., Publishers 2012; US$ 35.00

    The first 17 years of his life, he was known as Peter Korytowski, Pierre Engglenger and Pierre Boivin, depending on who was hunting him at the time. Nine years old and his world had collapsed. It was 1939 and Hitler had unleashed the Blitzkrieg--bombs were exploding all around him, changing everything. This moment of terror catapulted him into an epic... more...
