The Jew in the modern world : a documentary history by Paul R Mendes-Flohr( Book )

24 editions published between 1980 and 2011 in English and Russian and held by 1,682 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Synopsis: The last two centuries have witnessed a radical transformation of Jewish life. Marked by such profound events as the emancipation from the ghettoes of Europe, the Holocaust and the establishment of the State of Israel, Judaism's long journey through the modern age has been a complex and tumultuous one, leading many Jews to ask themselves not only where they have been and where they are going, but what it means to be a Jew in today's world. Tracing the dramatic changes in Jewish religion, culture, and identity from the seventeenth century to the present, The Jew in the Modern World, Third Edition, remains the most complete sourcebook on modern Jewish history available. Now thoroughly expanded and updated, this critically acclaimed volume of primary materials features previously unpublished and inaccessible sources concerning the Jewish experience in Eastern Europe, the Middle East, and North Africa; women in Jewish history; American Jewish life; the Holocaust; and Zionism and the nascent Jewish community in Palestine on the eve of the establishment of the State of Israel. The documents are arranged chronologically in each chapter and are meticulously and extensively annotated and cross-referenced. Providing useful tables detailing Jewish demographic trends, this unique text is ideal for courses in modern Jewish history, Zionism and Israel, the Holocaust, or modern European history. New to this Edition: Over 100 new documents address important issues to understanding modern Jewish history, including the status of women, and debates between traditional and secular Jews and the role of Zionism in modern Jewish life; Two entirely new chapters-Chapter 8, "Sephardi and Middle Eastern Jewry," and Chapter 12, "Jewish Identity Challenged and Redefined"--Enhance the book's scope and chronology; Four new maps show the concentration of Jews throughout the Mediterranean and Middle East. The Appendix has been completely updated with the latest population figures

Chaim Weizmann : the making of a statesman by Jehuda Reinharz( Book )

10 editions published between 1992 and 1993 in English and held by 555 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This narrative follows Weizmann's life from the beginning of the First World War through some of his greatest triumphs--the Balfour Declaration, the founding of the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, and the British Mandate for Palestine. Reinharz untangles the internal politics of the World Zionist Organization as he charts Weizmann's rise to prominence. We see Weizmann struggling with fellow Zionists over his pro-British policies and his increasingly authoritarian leadership. We see him as a persuader and diplomat, a charming figure who could win influence in elite British circles without downplaying his Jewish identity or heritage. Reinharz offers insights into Weizmann's brilliance as a chemist and follows the difficult negotiations that produced the triumphant Balfour Declaration. He carries the story through Weizmann's work in Palestine to found a vibrant Jewish community. Weizmann's largely unsuccessful efforts to open a friendly dialogue with the Arabs are also fully explored. --From publisher's description

Zionism and the creation of a new society by Ben Halpern( Book )

16 editions published between 1998 and 2000 in English and Hebrew and held by 505 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book studies the birth of the State of Israel and analyzes the elaborately articulated and variegated ideological principles of the Zionist movement that led to that birth. It examines conflicting pre-state ideals and the social structure that emerged in Palestine's Jewish community during the Mandate period. In particular, Zionism and the Creation of a New Society reflects upon Israel's existence as both a state and a social structure - a place conceived before its birth as a means of solving a particular social malady: the modern Jewish Problem. Jehuda Reinharz and the late Ben Halpern carefully trace the development of the Zionist idea from its earliest expressions up to the eve of World War II, setting their study against a broad background of political and social development throughout Europe and the Middle East

Essential papers on Zionism( Book )

16 editions published between 1995 and 1996 in English and Undetermined and held by 408 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Zionism, more than any other social and political movement in the modern era, has completely and fundamentally altered the self-image of the Jewish people and its relations with the non-Jewish world. As the dominant expression of Jewish nationalism, Zionism revolutionized the very concept of Jewish peoplehood, taking upon itself the transformation of the Jewish people from a minority into a majority, and from a diaspora community into a territorial one. Bringing together for the first time the work of the most distinguished historians of Zionism and the Yishuv (pre-state Israeli society), much never before translated into English, this volume offers a comprehensive treatment of the history of Zionism. The contributions are diverse, examining such topics as the ideological development of the Jewish nationalist movement, Zionism and the diaspora, Zionist trends in the Land of Israel, relations between Jews, Arabs, and the British in Palestine, and Zionism as a movement of cultural renaissance
Zionism and religion( Book )

12 editions published between 1994 and 1999 in Hebrew and English and held by 328 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The relationship between nationalism and religion has often been characterized by antagonisms and antipathy. In this anthology, scholars from Israel and the United States examine various perspectives - history, sociology, theology, law, political science - the complex nexus within Judaism of these two sources of repeated ideological and political dispute. Together these authors confront a fundamental question: was religion the essential foundation for Zionism, or merely a single component now amenable to modern interpretation? The collection demonstrates that "the permutations in the dynamic interaction between nationalism and religion are not confined solely to the plane of historical events, but are also evident in society and the intellectual sphere."
The impact of Western nationalisms : essays dedicated to Walter Z. Laqueur on the occasion of his 70th birthday by Jehuda Reinharz( Book )

20 editions published between 1988 and 1993 in English and Italian and held by 245 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Nationalism lies at the core of the history of the twentieth century, as the most lasting world view of modern times. This volume provides a unique panoramic insight into the history, and contemporary experience, of modern nationalism. The contributors explore nationalism in its many faces. Key issues examined include the changing definitions of Western nationalism from the nineteenth-century conceptions of state development and patriotism through its increasing link with conservatism and chauvinism; the relation of nationalism to development and modernity, and its role in fundamentalist and isolationist reactions against the modern world; and its expression in the 'civic religion' of the state and the invention of tradition. Individual contributions analyse the tensions between nationalism and social ideologies transcending the boundaries of the nation state, from Marxism and international law to pan-Arabist sentiment. A recurrent focus is the issue of the 'Jewish Nation', its relation to Zionism, and the Holocaust as the climax to one trajectory of Western nationalism. Drawing on a wealth of examples from a broad geographical range, this book will be essential reading for scholars of contemporary history, political science, and the social theory of the modern state. The volume, the majority of which has appeared in the Journal of Contemporary History (Volume 26, Issue 3-4), is dedicated to Walter Laqueur in recognition of his unique contribution to the history of modern nationalism

Die Sprache der Judenfeindschaft im 21. Jahrhundert by Monika Schwarz( Book )

7 editions published between 2012 and 2013 in German and English and held by 79 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Main description: Verbal-Antisemitismus manifestiert sich als Gewalt durch Sprache. Die vorliegende Studie basiert auf der Analyse von über 10.000 E-Mails bzw. Briefen an den Zentralrat der Juden und die israelische Botschaft. Sie widmet sich der Frage, wie über sprachliche Äußerungen spezifische Vorstellungen über Juden konstruiert und aktiviert werden. Wann ist eine Äußerung als antisemitisch einzustufen? Inwiefern stellt Anti-Israelismus eine neue Variante des Verbal-Antisemitismus dar? Die beiden Autoren behandeln die verschiedenen verbalen Manifestationen des aktuellen Antisemitismus und deren zugrundeliegenden geistigen Vorstellungen sowohl aus historischer als auch aus sprach- und kognitionswissenschaftlicher Perspektive

Aktueller Antisemitismus : ein Phänomen der Mitte? by Monika Schwarz( Book )

12 editions published in 2010 in German and English and held by 45 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Anti-Jewish sentiment and prejudice are not a fringe-group phenomenon. In recent years the inhibition threshold for expressing anti-Semitic content in public has become lower, with Israel often serving as a screen for projecting anti-Jewish sentiment. This anti-Semitism of the mainstream of society was the focus of an interdisciplinary symposium in 2009 at Friedrich Schiller University Jena. The book contains the conference contributions, in which eminent experts on anti-Semitism such as Wolfgang Benz, Jehuda Reinharz and Martin Kloke analyse the phenomenon
