Immigration in a changing economy : California's experience by Kevin F McCarthy( )

9 editions published between 1997 and 1998 in English and held by 1,861 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

International immigration to California has steadily increased over the past 30 years.

The culmination of a comprehensive study of how immigration has changed over the past three decades, this book assesses the impact immigrants have made on California's economy and culture
Masculinity after Trujillo : the politics of gender in Dominican literature by Maja Horn( )

4 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 1,776 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Any observer of Dominican political and literary discourse will quickly notice how certain notions of hyper-masculinity permeate the culture. Many critics will attribute this to an outgrowth of "traditional" Latin American patriarchal culture. Masculinity after Trujillo demonstrates why they are mistaken. In this extraordinary work, Maja Horn argues that this common Dominican attitude became ingrained during the dictatorship (1930-61) of Rafael Leonidas Trujillo, as well as through the U.S. military occupation that preceded it. Where previous studies have focused mainly on Spanish colonialism and the controversial sharing of the island with Haiti, Horn emphasizes the underexamined and lasting influence of U.S. imperialism and how it prepared the terrain for Trujillo's hyperbolic language of masculinity. She also demonstrates how later attempts to emasculate the image of Trujillo often reproduced the same masculinist ideology popularized by his government. By using the lens of gender politics, Horn enables readers to reconsider the ongoing legacy of the Trujillato, including the relatively weak social movements formed around racial and ethnic identities, sexuality, and even labor. She offers exciting new interpretations of such writers as Hilma Contreras, Rita Indiana Hernández, and Junot Díaz, revealing the ways they successfully challenge dominant political and canonical literary discourses

1 edition published in 2020 in English and held by 670 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

2 editions published in 2020 in English and held by 667 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

An "analysis of gender not only in the biblical (Apocrypha) book of Sirach but in literature from the Second Temple period more broadly.

2 editions published in 2020 in English and held by 666 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Scholastic rabbinism : a literary study of the Fathers according to Rabbi Nathan by Anthony J Saldarini( )

1 edition published in 2020 in English and held by 666 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Scholastic Rabbinism is a study of two early rabbinic documents, Pirke Avot and the Avot d'Rabbi Natan. Saldarini's study examines the literary connections between these related documents while at the same time drawing larger conclusions about their provenance and what they contribute to our understanding of early rabbinic scholasticism"--Provided by publisher
Kol nidre : studies in the development of rabbinic votive institutions by Moshe Benovitz( )

1 edition published in 2020 in English and held by 666 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book is an introduction to the laws of oaths and vows of various types as they appear in biblical, Second Temple, and rabbinic sources. These institutions developed over time, and the oaths and vows mentioned in Second Temple literature should not be understood in light of subsequent rabbinic development. On the contrary: it is precisely the Second Temple texts, however obscure they may be, that provide the clues toward understanding the evolution of these institutions in rabbinic literature."--Provided by publisher
Ben Sira's teaching on friendship by Jeremy Corley( )

1 edition published in 2020 in English and held by 657 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The purpose of this study is to elucidate Ben Sira's teaching on friendship within the religious and cultural context of his time, in view of the Hellenistic emphasis on philia ("friendship"). While friendship is of contemporary interest, until recently there has been little research into the understanding of friendship in Second Temple Judaism. This study aims to fill the lacuna by focusing on the apocryphal/deuterocanonical Wisdom of Ben Sira (Sirach). In fact, no book of the Hebrew Bible says as much about friendship as does the Wisdom of Ben Sira."--Provided by publisher
Philo's perception of women by Dorothy Sly( )

1 edition published in 2020 in English and held by 654 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Dorothy Sly's Philo's Perception of Women (1990) carefully assesses Philo's statements about women against his portrayals of different women found in the Hebrew Bible. It remains one of the few comprehensive studies of this topic."--Provided by publisher
Sectarian law in the Dead Sea scrolls : courts, testimony, and the penal code by Lawrence H Schiffman( )

1 edition published in 2020 in English and held by 653 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This volume examines the sectarian legal system, specifically its courts, court proƯcedure, rules of testimony and the Penal Code. Schiffman argues that the legal system portrayed in the scrolls coheres organically with the community's theological outlook and idealized vision of itself. His argument thus challenges attempts to see the scrolls as having been produced by multiple groups, randomly collected and preserved."--Provided by publisher
From rebuke to consolation : exegesis and theology in the liturgical anthology of the Ninth of Av season by Elsie R Stern( )

1 edition published in 2020 in English and held by 651 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Unlike the midrashim and the liturgical poetry, Targum Jonathan does not echo the themes of the lectionary anthology. Instead, it downplays the erotic relationship between God and Israel and underscores portraits of divine power and transcendence. The discrepancy between the Targum and the other genres suggests that the Targum did not arise in the liturgical context. Consequently, it reflects the meaning of the texts in their canonical context, not in their liturgical context

Summary note
Babylonian witchcraft literature : case studies by I. Tzvi Abusch( )

1 edition published in 2020 in English and held by 644 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The studies in this volume focus on individual Babylonian magical texts while developing an overall understanding of these texts as a whole. Part One follows a diachronic approach, Part Two a synchronic one. In this sense, the studies are to be viewed broadly: while unravelling knots in individual texts, they highlight certain issues and exemplify some solutions for common problems in traditional Mesopotamian therapeutic literature."--Provided by publisher

Goyim : gentiles and Israelites in Mishnah-Tosefta by Gary G Porton( )

Some Jewish women in antiquity by Meir Bar-Ilan( )

1 edition published in 2020 in English and held by 632 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book sets out to characterize different types of Jewish women in Eretz-Israel over an extended period of more than a thousand years, from the biblical period to the time of the Mishnah and Talmud. This is a study in the comparative history of the status of women in Eretz-Israel in antiquity, and, like any comparative study, it addresses the same issues in different circumstances, contributing to the relatively new field of Jewish social history; it also furnishes additional proof, should any be necessary, of the scientific momentum to be gained by interdisciplinary study like the present combination of history and the social sciences."--Provided by publisher
