Yiddish and the Creation of Soviet Jewish Culture by David Shneer

Book Description

Yiddish and the Creation of Soviet Jewish Culture gives voice to the activists empowered by the state to create a Soviet Jewish national culture. These activists were striving for a national revolution to create a new culture for Jews to identify as Jews on new, secular, Soviet terms. This book explores the ways in which Jews were part of, not apart from, both the Soviet system and Jewish history. Soviet Jewish culture worked within contemporary Jewish national and cultural trends and simultaneously participated in the larger project of propagating the Soviet state and ideology. Soviet Jewish activists were not nationalists or Soviets, but both at once. David Shneer addresses some of the painful truths about Jews' own implication and imbrication in the Soviet system and inserts their role in twentieth-century Jewish culture into the narrative of Jewish history.

This book explores the ways in which Jews were part of, not apart from, both the Soviet system and Jewish history.

American Queer, Now and Then by David Shneer American Queer, Now and Then, Hardback (May 2006)

Brings together autobiographies, poetry, film studies, maps, documents, laws, and other texts to explore the meaning and practice of the word queer. This work means queer as both a form of social violence and a call to political activism; and queer as played by Robin Williams and Sharon Stone. It shows what it means to be queer in America.

New Jews by David Shneer New Jews, Paperback (December 2005)

Offers a portrait of Jewish life. The authors argue that there is a new generation of Jews. In this book, the authors take us around the world and find Jewish communities where Jewish identity is increasingly flexible and inclusive, not something to be hidden but a part of one's identity to be proud of. They focus on new elements of Jewish life.
