  • Dutch Jewry in a Cultural Maelstromby Judith Frishman; Hetty Berg; J. de Jong; W. Koetsenruijter

    Amsterdam University Press 2008; US$ 34.95

    Not only the Jews but Dutch society at large was caught up in a cultural maelstrom between 1880 and 1940. In failing to form a separate pillar in a period when various population groups were doing just that, the Jews were certainly unlike contemporary Catholics or Protestants. In fact, the Jews were not trying to gain entrance in a pre-existing culture... more...

  • The Tin Ringby Zdenka Fantlova

    McNidder and Grace Limited 2011; US$ 11.99

    Review Zdenka Fantlová and her story made a lasting impression. She survived six concentration camps, endured horrors the like of which most of us can't begin to comprehend, yet never lost the will to live or her optimism for a better future. During her time in the camps she kept a little tin ring, made for her by her boyfriend. She risked her life... more...

  • Jewish Identities in Iranby Mehrdad Amanat

    I.B.Tauris 2011; US$ 14.95

    For minority faith groups living in nineteenth-century Iran, religious conversion to Islam - both voluntary and forced - was the primary means of social integration and assimilation. However, why was it that some Persian Jews instead embraced the emergent Baha'i Faith, which was subject to harsher persecution that Judaism? Mehrdad Amanat explores the... more...

  • An Uncommon Friendshipby Bernat Rosner; Frederic C. Tubach

    University of California Press 2010; US$ 29.95

    In 1944, 13-year-old Fritz Tubach was almost old enough to join the Hitler Youth in his German village of Kleinheubach. That same year in Tab, Hungary, 12-year-old Bernie Rosner was loaded onto a train with the rest of the village’s Jewish inhabitants and taken to Auschwitz, where his whole family was murdered. Many years later, after enjoying successful... more...

  • The Five Walking Sticksby Henry R. Lew

    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. His story is most unusual and certainly more fascinating than many others that relate to the rich and famous, and the reader certainly does not miss out on the rich and famous by travelling through the pages of Maurice's... more...

  • Love and Struggleby David Gilbert; Boots Riley

    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. From his entry into the world of political... more...

  • 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...
