Israel in History by Derek J. Penslar

Book Description

Covering 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 by Derek J. Penslar 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.

In Search of Jewish Community by Derek J. Penslar In Search of Jewish Community, Paperback (June 1998)

Presents the re-emerging sense of community within the German-speaking Jewish population of Germany and Austria in the two decades after World War I.
