Beta Israel in Ethiopia and Israel by Tudor Parfitt

Book Description

For decade the Falashas - the Black Jews of Ethiopia - have fascinated scholars. Are they really Jews and in what sense? How can their origins be explained? Since the Falashas' transfer to Israel in the much publicised Israeli air lifts the fascination has continued and and new factors are now being discussed. Written by the leading scholars in the field the essays in this collection examine the history, music, art, anthropology and current situations of the Ethopian Jews. Issues examined include their integration into Middle Eastern society, contacts between the Falasha and the State of Israel how the Falasha became Jews in the first place.

Jews, Muslims and Mass Media by Tudor Parfitt Jews, Muslims and Mass Media, Hardback (August 2003)

The media have clearly played a pro-active role in the Middle East conflict, the coverage of which is obscured by the contrasting images of Jew and Muslim in western thought. This text looks at the ways in which Jews, Muslims and the conflict has been covered in the media and tries to reveal why both Jews and Muslims generally receive a bad press.
