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

18 editions published between 1998 and 2000 in English and Hebrew and held by 2,289 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
The Jew in the modern world : a documentary history by Paul R Mendes-Flohr( Book )

32 editions published between 1980 and 2011 in English and Russian and held by 1,718 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 Now thoroughly expanded and updated, this critically acclaimed volume of primary materials features previously unpublished and inaccessible sources concerning the Jewish experience in Eastern Europe, the Middle East, and North Africa; women in Jewish history; American Jewish life;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
Glorious, accursed Europe : an essay on Jewish ambivalence by Yaʻaḳov Shaviṭ( )

Zionism and religion( )

5 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 906 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."

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

12 editions published in 2010 in German and English and held by 876 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
Israel in the Middle East : documents and readings on society, politics, and foreign relations, 1948-present by Itamar Rabinovich( Book )

15 editions published between 1984 and 2008 in English and Polish and held by 779 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"An anthology of the most important documents on the domestic and foreign policy of the modern state of Israel, in relation to the rest of the Middle East." "This anthology, completely revised and updated from the original edition in 1984, provides convenient access to the most significant documents of the Zionist movement since 1882 and of Israel's domestic policies and foreign policies between 1948 and 2006." "Comprised largely of primary sources from Israeli, Arab, and American records, documents encompass not only political and diplomatic history but also economic, cultural, legal, and social aspects of the region as well. The second edition also addresses areas not covered by the 1984 volume: a new chapter on the pre-state period, additional documents that reflect the Palestinian perspective, and the voices of women. Divided into eight chronological sections, documents are introduced by an overview of the entire era. They are annotated and preceded by explanatory headnotes."--Jacket

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

11 editions published between 1992 and 1996 in English and Hebrew and held by 550 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, 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."--BOOK JACKET. "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."--BOOK JACKET

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

9 editions published between 2012 and 2017 in German and English and held by 268 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Verbal anti-Semitism reveals itself as violence in linguistic form. This study is based on the analysis of over 10,000 e-mails and letters sent to the Central Council of Jews in Germany and the Israeli Embassy. It considers the question of how specific ideas about Jews are constructed and activated. At which point can a statement be regarded as anti-Semitic? To what extent does anti-Israelism represent a new variant of verbal anti-Semitism? The two authors examine the various verbal manifestations of current anti-Semitism and the mental images on which these are based, applying both a historic
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 249 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

The road to September 1939 : Polish Jews, Zionists, and the Yishuv on the eve of World War II by Jehuda Reinharz( Book )

7 editions published in 2018 in English and held by 175 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"How the Zionist movement and the Yishuv actively sought to help Polish and other European Jews in the 1930s In European and Holocaust historiography, it is generally believed that neither the Zionist movement nor the Yishuv, acting primarily out of self-interest, energetically attempted to help European Jews escape the Nazi threat. Drawing on the memoirs, letters, and institutional reports of Chaim Weizmann, Zeev Jabotinsky, David Ben-Gurion, and many others, this volume sheds new light on a troubled period in Jewish history. Reinharz and Shavit trace Jewish responses to developments in Eastern and Central Europe to show that--contrary to recent scholarship and popular belief--Zionists in the Yishuv worked tirelessly on the international stage on behalf of their coreligionists in Europe. Focusing particularly on Poland, while explicating conditions in Germany and Czechoslovakia as well, the authors examine the complicated political issues that arose not just among Jews themselves, but also within national governments in Britain, Europe, and America. Piercing to the heart of conversations about how or whether to save Jews in an increasingly hostile Europe, this volume provides a nuanced and thoughtful assessment of what could and could not be achieved in the years just prior to World War II and the Holocaust"--
