The economy in Jewish history : new perspectives on the interrelationship between ethnicity and economic life by Gideon Reuveni( )

10 editions published between 2010 and 2011 in English and held by 291 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Based on a workshop held at the University of Wisconsin titled "Jewish History Encounters the Economy," this volume addresses a topic that until recently had been relegated to the margins of Jewish studies despite its centrality in Jewish life and stereotypes of Jews. Reuveni and Wobick-Segev introduce 11 essays that offer new readings of Jewish history of the interaction of economic with other aspects of life. Case studies treat national and transnational contexts, e.g., the Jewish role in the modernization of Hungary's economy, early 20th century trade in African ostrich plumes, and origins of the diamond industry in British-ruled Palestine
Reading Germany : literature and consumer culture in Germany before 1933 by Gideon Reuveni( Book )

7 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 237 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"By closely examining the interaction between intellectual and material culture in the period before the Nazis came to power in Germany, the author comes to the conclusion that, contrary to widely held assumptions, consumer culture in the Weimar period, far from undermining reading, used reading culture to enhance its goods and values. Reading material was marked as a consumer good, while reading as an activity, raising expectations as it did, influenced consumer culture. Consequently, consumption contributed to the diffusion of reading culture, while at the same time a popular reading culture strengthened consumption and its values."--Jacket
Consumer culture and the making of modern Jewish identity by Gideon Reuveni( Book )

9 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 162 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Antisemitic stereotypes of Jews as capitalists have hindered research into the economic dimension of the Jewish past. The figure of the Jew as trader and financier dominated the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. But the economy has been central to Jewish life and the Jewish image in the world; Jews not only made money but spent money. This book is the first to investigate the intersection between consumption, identity, and Jewish history in Europe. It aims to examine the role and place of consumption within Jewish society and the ways consumerism generated and reinforced Jewish notions of belonging from the end of the eighteenth-century to the beginning of the new millennium. It shows how the advances of modernization and secularization in the modern period increased the importance of consumption in Jewish life, making it a significant factor in the process of redefining Jewish identity"--

Emanzipation durch Muskelkraft : Juden und Sport in Europa( Book )

5 editions published in 2006 in German and held by 65 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Michael Brenner und Gideon Reuveni legen eine Aufsatzsammlung vor, die die Beziehung zwischen Judentum und Sport unter Berücksichtigung der besonderen europäisch-jüdischen Erfahrung zu verorten sucht. Ausgangspunkt ist die Annahme, dass die Art und Weise wie eine Gesellschaft sich zu Sport und Körper positioniert, etwas über ihre Selbstdefinition aussagt. Die Autoren widmen sich den jüdischen Muskeln und Kräften, von Resh Lakish über rabbinische Responsa aus dem 16. und 17. Jahrhundert bis hin zur Sportbegeisterung zwischen den beiden Weltkriegen und dem Ruf der Zionisten, einen neuen Juden zu schaffen. So schreiben sie, ganz nebenbei, eine äußerst spannende Sport - und Gesellschaftsgeschichte und beleuchten das Verhältnis von Sport und Ethik
The Jewish experience of the First World War by Edward Madigan( )

3 editions published between 2018 and 2019 in English and held by 59 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book explores the variety of social and political phenomena that combined to the make the First World War a key turning point in the Jewish experience of the twentieth century. Just decades after the experience of intense persecution and struggle for recognition that marked the end of the nineteenth century, Jewish men and women across the globe found themselves drawn into a conflict of unprecedented violence and destruction. The frenzied military, social, and cultural mobilisation of European societies between 1914 and 1918, along with the outbreak of revolution in Russia and the collapse of the Ottoman Empire in the Middle East had a profound impact on Jewish communities worldwide. The First World War thus constitutes a seminal but surprisingly under-researched moment in the evolution of modern Jewish history. The essays gathered together in this ground-breaking volume explore the ways in which Jewish communities across Europe and the wider world experienced, interpreted and remembered the ‘war to end all wars’.--

The Jewish Labor Bund after the Holocaust : a comparative history by David Slucki( Book )

1 edition published in 2010 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

This thesis examines the history of the Jewish Labor Bund after the Holocaust, and brings into focus its reorganization as a transnational movement. The post-war Bund, comprising local organizations in over a dozen countries was tiny, with only a few thousand members, yet its output was significant in many places. The six decades after Europe's liberation saw the publication of long-lasting Bundist journals and newspapers in Melbourne, New York, Paris, Mexico City, Tel Aviv, and Buenos Aires. These organizations were represented on local Jewish communal umbrella bodies. Bundists were active in cultural institutions, welfare bodies, and mutual aid societies. They also collaborated closely with the local socialist movement in most locations. Bundist calendars were crowded with lectures, meetings, discussions, cultural undertakings, fundraisers, commemorations, and anniversary celebrations. A few locations tried-mostly unsuccessfully-to foster youth movements. In terms of numbers, the post-war Bund never rose to great heights. At most, it numbered several thousand. Still, contemporary scholars can benefit from a closer analysis of what actually took place to this group of survivors. This thesis charts both the ideological and organizational debates that played out in the years following the war, as Bundists sought to revitalize their movement. It is about the Bundist notion of doikayt, literally 'here-ness', which demanded that Jews build viable Jewish communities in the places in which they lived. The doikayt principle shunned Jewish statehood as a solution to Jewish problems, and was based on the notion that there was no single Jewish centre or homeland. This thesis is about ideas, and the personalities behind them. It explores the challenges of people trying to resurrect an organization that had been nearly destroyed during the Holocaust. For many Bundists, the continuation of their movement provided comfort amidst the uncertainty of displacement. It helped them ease their way into their new surroundings. It was a meeting place in which they linked the past, present, and future. The Bund came to represent a slice of the home from which they had been torn so violently and abruptly. It was something permanent and safe that bridged the old world with the new lives they were forging in a variety of different settings. The history of the Bund after the Holocaust offers a great deal for historians. By looking comparatively at a number of Bundist communities, this thesis illuminates the post-war Jewish experience more broadly, and it examines the local factors that affected the different trajectories of Jewish communities. Through an exploration of the Bundists' experience, historians can gain an even broader understanding of the ways in which the Holocaust affected survivors, and of the way those survivors set about the task of rebuilding their lives. It is true that the Holocaust greatly weakened the Bund. It did not, however, destroy the movement. The establishment of the world Bund in 1947 marked the dawn of a new era in the Bund's history, which is the focus this study
