Trials of the diaspora : a history of anti-semitism in England by Anthony Julius ( Book )
16 editions published between 2010 and 2012 in English and held by 760 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Trials of the Diaspora is a ground-breaking book that reveals the full history of anti-Semitism in England. Anthony Julius focuses on four distinct versions of English anti-Semitism. He begins with the medieval persecution of Jews, which included defamation, expropriation, and murder, and which culminated in 1290 when King Edward I expelled all the Jews from England. Turning to literary anti-Semitism, Julius shows that negative portrayals of Jews have been continuously present in English literature from the anonymous medieval ballad "Sir Hugh, or the Jew's Daughter," through Shakespeare's Merchant of Venice, to T.S. Eliot and beyond. The book then moves to a depiction of modern anti-Semitism--a pervasive but contained prejudice of insult and exclusion that was experienced by Jews during their "readmission" to England in the mid-17th century through the late 20th century. The final chapters detail the contemporary anti-Semitism that emerged in the late 1960s and the 1970s and continues to be present today. It treats Zionism and the State of Israel as illegitimate Jewish enterprises, and, in Julius's opinion, now constitutes the greatest threat to Anglo-Jewish security and morale. A penetrating and original work, Trials of the Diaspora is sure to provoke much comment and debate. - Publisher
Transgressions : the offences of art by Anthony Julius ( Book )
12 editions published between 2002 and 2003 in English and Italian and held by 642 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Anthony Julius traces the history of subversion in art from the outraged response to Manet's Le Dejeuner sur l'Herbe to the scandal caused by the Brooklyn Museum's "Sensation" exhibition a century and a half later. Throughout the book, and supported by the work of such artists as Marcel Duchamp, the Chapman brothers, Andres Serrano, Damien Hirst, Gilbert and George, Paul McCarthy, Jeff Koons, Hans Haacke and Anselm Kiefer, Julius shows how the modern period has been characterized by three kinds of transgressive art: an art that perverts established art rules; an art that defiles the beliefs and sentiments of its audience; and an art that challenges and disobeys the rules of the state." "The evidence assembled, Julius concludes his hard-hitting dissection of the landscapes of contemporary art by posing some important questions: what is art's future when its boundary-exceeding, taboo-breaking endeavors become the norm? And is anything of value lost when we submit to art's violation?"--BOOK JACKET
Idolizing pictures : idolatry, iconoclasm, and Jewish art by Anthony Julius ( Book )
11 editions published between 2000 and 2001 in English and held by 314 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"In this book Anthony Julius derives a Jewish aesthetic from the Second Commandment. This prohibition of idolatry is not just an injunction against idol worshipping, but a call to idol breaking; it promotes a creative iconoclasm which exposes through irony inflated claims about art. Julius identifies and celebrates those Jewish works of art which by their irony subvert artistic and political idolatry. Idolizing Pictures is a manifesto for Jewish art."--BOOK JACKET
James Joyce, Ulysses, and the construction of Jewish identity culture, biography, and "the Jew" in modernist Europe by Neil R Davison ( )
2 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 14 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Representations of "the Jew" have long been a topic of interest in Joyce studies; in James Joyce, Ulysses, and the construction of Jewish identity Neil R. Davison argues that Joyce's lifelong encounter with pseudo-scientific, religious, and political discourse about "the Jew" forms a unifying component of his career. Davison offers new biographical material to support the claim that "the Jew" was a dynamic aspect of Joyce's imagination from youth to adulthood, and presents a detailed reading of Ulysses to show how Joyce draws on Christian folklore, Dreyfus Affair propaganda, Sinn Fein politics, and theories of Jewish sexual perversion and financial conspiracy."--Jacket
