Israel in History by Derek J. Penslar
Book DescriptionCovering topical issues concerning the nature of the Israeli state, this engaging work presents essays that combine a variety of comparative schemes, both internal to Jewish civilization and extending throughout the world, such as: * modern Jewish society, politics and culture * historical consciousness in the twentieth century * colonialism, anti-colonialism and postcolonial state-building. With its open-ended, comparative approach, Israel in History provides a useful means of correcting the biases found in so much scholarship on Israel, be it sympathetic or hostile. This book will appeal to scholars and students with research interests in many fields, including Israeli Studies, Middle East Studies, and Jewish Studies.

Shylock's Children, Hardback (June 2001)
Throughout European history, Jews have been associated with commerce and the money trade, rendered both visible and vulnerable, like Shylock, by their economic distinctiveness. This is the story of Jewish perceptions of this economic difference and its effect on modern Jewish identity.
