The citizen's voice : twentieth-century politics and literature by Michael Keren( Book )

9 editions published between 2000 and 2009 in English and held by 303 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Citizen's Voice expounds the key features of the "good citizen" as expressed by eight literary characters, Hans Castorp (Thomas Mann's The Magic Mountain). Joseph D. (Franz Kafka's The Trial), John the Savage (Aldous Huxley's Brave New World), Winston Smith (George Orwell's 1984), Ralph (William Golding's Lord of the Flies), Meursaust (Albert Camus' The Stranger), Ida Ramundo (Elsa Morante's History), and Chauncey Gardiner (Jerzy Kosinski's Being There)." "Keren observes these characters as they struggle through the world wars, the rise and fall of totalitarianism, the Holocaust, the development of the atomic bomb, de-colonization, the Cold War, and globalization." "As both participants in and victims of the twentieth century's ideological, technological and organization of projects, these characters reflect on their experiences; and Keren explores how the nature of then self-reflection advanced the notion of civil society in a global scale." "The Citizen's Voice makes a refreshing contribution to civil society theory and represents a pioneering effect to cross the boundaries between politics, literature, and culture."--Jacket
The pen and the sword : Israeli intellectuals and the making of the nation-state by Michael Keren( Book )

6 editions published in 1989 in English and held by 286 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Professionals against populism : the Peres government and democracy by Michael Keren( Book )

11 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 246 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book, based on Shimon Peres's private papers, tells the unusual story of the Peres government of 1984-1986 in Israel. It is the story of an unpopular politician, demonized by his political enemies, who operates under great time restraints to manage a pluralistic democracy losing ground to enchanted masses in public squares. Lacking support from his own national unity government, Peres reverted to his old-time alliance with Israel's technocrats in his combat against populism. Michael Keren analyzes the role of legal professionals, strategic experts, and economists in the three main events of the Peres era: the scandal over the killing of two Arab terrorists by the General Security Service; the efforts to renew the peace process in the Middle East after the Lebanon war; and the economic stabilization program of 1985. The analysis illumines Israel's hitherto unexplored technocratic stratum and its ongoing struggle over Israel's nature as an advanced industrial state. This stratum, the author contends, has been the moving force behind the construction of the nuclear reactor in Dimona in the 1960s, the combat against populism in the 1980s, and the Israeli-Palestinian peace process of today
We are coming, unafraid : the Jewish legions and the promised land in the First World War by Michael Keren( Book )

9 editions published in 2010 in English and Undetermined and held by 207 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book tells the little-known stories of three all-Jewish battalions formed in the British army as part of the Allies' Middle East campaign, recruiting soldiers from the United States, Canada, England, and Argentina. Many of the soldiers, ranging widely in education level, social class, and combat experience, were displaced immigrants or children of such immigrants. Together, they coalesced into the all-Jewish battalions: "the liberators of the Promised Land." The ranks of the Jewish Legions included some who would become prominent leaders, such as David Ben-Gurion, Israel's first prime minister, and Yitzhak Ben-Zvi, Israel's second president; however, this book focuses on the experiences of ordinary soldiers who served alongside them. Drawing on diaries, memoirs, and letters, the book follows their journey at sea through unrestricted submarine warfare; by trains and trucks through Europe, Egypt, and Palestine; and their battlefield experiences. The authors show how these Yiddish-speaking young men forged a new kind of soldier identity with unique Jewish features, as well as an evolving sense of nationalism."--Publisher
War memory and popular culture : essays on modes of remembrance and commemoration( Book )

4 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 182 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This work explores the evolution from traditional to contemporary forms of war commemoration while centering around fundamental question of whether these new forms of memorial are meant to encourage the remembering or forgetting of the experience of war, as well as what implications this process may have for the continuation of the modern nation state"--Provided by publisher
Politics and literature at the turn of the millennium by Michael Keren( Book )

6 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 102 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book shows how important insights about genocide, poverty, state violence, world terrorism, the clash of civilizations, and other phenomena haunting the world at the turn of the millennium can be derived from contemporary novels. Keren demonstrates ways in which fictional literature can provide new perspectives on the complexities and contingencies of contemporary politics. His fresh readings of well-known novels will be valuable not only for political scientists but also for anyone interested in current affairs who reads fiction but is not always aware of its power to provide enlightenment on world issues. Works by José Saramago, Cormac McCarthy, Anosh Irani, John Le Carré, and Yann Martel, among others, are studied."--
