The new Jewish Argentina : facets of Jewish experiences in the Southern cone by Adriana Mariel Brodsky( )

13 editions published between 2012 and 2014 in English and held by 769 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The New Jewish Argentina aims at filling in important lacunae in the existing historiography of Jewish Argentines. Moving away from the political history of the organized community, most articles are devoted to social and cultural history, including unaffiliated Jews, women and gender, criminals, printing presses and book stores. These essays, written by scholars from various countries, consider the tensions between the national and the trans-national and offer a mosaic of identities which is relevant to all interested in Jewish history, Argentine history and students of ethnicity and diaspora. This collection problematizes the existing image of Jewish-Argentines and looks at Jews not just as persecuted ethnics, idealized agricultural workers, or as political actors in Zionist politics"--Publisher description
In the shadow of Perón : Juan Atilio Bramuglia and the second line of Argentina's populist movement by Raanan Rein( Book )

5 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 355 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Populism has been one of the most important phenomena in the political and social history of Latin America. In the Shadow of Peron challenges several commonly held assumptions about the nature of populism and the relations between the charismatic leader and the popular masses. Devoted to the second line of Peronist leadership in Argentina from the 1940s onwards, it focuses on the figure of Juan Atilio Bramuglia, who tried to offer an alternative path for the movement. The volume stresses the heterogeneous nature of Peronism and traces the various ideological sources of its doctrine. It also analyzes Peron's machinations in order to maintain his leadership and eliminate any opposition within the movement."--The Publisher
The new ethnic studies in Latin America by The New Ethnic Studies: Issues and Methods (Veranstaltung)( )

10 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 342 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The New Ethnic Studies in Latin America aims at going beyond and against much of Jewish Latin American historiography, situating Jewish-Latin Americans in the larger multi-ethnic context of their countries. Senior and junior scholars from various countries joined together to challenge commonly held assumptions, accepted ideas, and stable categories about ethnicity in Latin America in general and Jewish experiences on this continent in particular. This volume brings to the discussions on Jewish life in Latin America less heard voices of women, non-affiliated Jews, and intellectuals. Community institutions are not at center stage, conflicts and tensions are brought to the fore, and a multitude of voices pushes aside images of homogeneity. Authors in this tome look at Jews' multiple homelands: their country of birth, their country of residence, and their imagined homeland of Zion

10 editions published between 1998 and 1999 in English and held by 242 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This is the first collection of articles in English devoted to Spain's relations with the Mediterranean countries in the twentieth century. It focuses on Spain's shift of emphasis from Latin America to the Mediterranean basin after the loss of its last colonies in the New World in 1898 (Cuba and Puerto Rica). The contributors analyse the Mediterranean policy of Spain's different regimes: the Bourbon monarchy, Primo de Rivera's dictatorship, the Second Republic, Francoism, and post-Franco democracy."--Jacket
In the shadow of the Holocaust and the Inquisition : Israel's relations with Francoist Spain by Raanan Rein( Book )

9 editions published between 1997 and 2013 in English and held by 215 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Discusses relations between Spain and Israel between 1948-56. States that Franco attempted to initiate diplomatic relations with Israel in order to prove that Spain was not antisemitic and racist like Germany, although he had been an ally of the Nazis during World War II. Ch. 2 (p. 76-99) relates the reluctance of Israel to establish diplomatic relations with Spain because of Franco's past sympathies. Memories of the Inquisition did not play a part in Israeli policy. Relations were finally established in 1986
Spanish and Latin American transitions to democracy( Book )

11 editions published between 2004 and 2006 in English and held by 212 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The essays in this book, written by distinguished specialists, examine the different trajectories in Spain and several nations in Latin America, and seek to explain the different outcomes. In the large recent literature on transitions, this is the first systematic comparison between Spain and the Latin American cases. Taken together, these papers make a powerful argument in favor of the thesis that the outcomes of these transitions are largely determined by the solidity of institutions, governmental ones in particular."--Jacket
Argentina, Israel, and the Jews : Perón, the Eichmann capture and after by Raanan Rein( Book )

7 editions published between 2002 and 2003 in English and held by 193 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Though Israel has always defined itself as a Jewish state with the obligation to defend Jews anywhere in the world, the interests of the State have not always coincided with those of the Argentinian Jewish community. A divergence of interests was already evident during the regime of Juan Peron (1946-1955), and problems reached a climax after the kidnapping of Adolf Eichmann in May, 1960 and his trial in Israel. In this work, Raanan Rein explores the nature of Argentina's governments from 1947 to 1962 and their attitudes toward Israel and the local Jewish community. He treats the South American republic's neutral stance during World War II and explains to what extent the country served as a safe haven for Nazi war criminals

Populism and ethnicity : Peronism and the Jews of Argentina by Raanan Rein( )

3 editions published in 2020 in English and held by 80 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Juan Perón’s decade-long regime, from 1946 to 1955, is often presented as Nazi-fascist and antisemitic – claims that are strongly rooted in Argentina’s collective unconscious and popular culture. Challenging this widely held view, Raanan Rein asserts that there was greater Jewish support for Perón than previously believed, and that fewer antisemitic incidents took place in Argentina during Perón’s rule than during any other period in the twentieth century. Recovering the silenced voices of Jewish Argentines who supported Peronism from the beginning, Populism and Ethnicity is a historical, sociological, and political analysis that describes the many positive changes experienced by the Jewish community as a direct result of Perón’s presidencies. Perón and his wife Eva gave numerous speeches denouncing antisemitism, and Perón’s Argentina was the first Latin American country to open an embassy in the newly established State of Israel. Arguing that no president before Perón so unambiguously rejected discrimination against Jews, Rein shows that many Jews secured more important posts in government in the 1940s and 1950s than in previous years, among them members of the Argentine Jewish Organization, which became a section of the ruling Peronist party. Deconstructing the myth of antisemitism during Perón’s regime, Populism and Ethnicity looks deep into the heart of international memory for the truth behind Jewish-Argentine relations."--
