Book News Annotation:
Exploring the role the three factors have played in creating the modern Jewish experience, historians and social scientists from Israel, the US, and Europe cover three geographical and historical dimensions: Europe before and during World War II; the US; and the Zionist movement, the Yishuv, and the State of Israel. The 15 essays are based in part on presentations at a January 2001 conference in Ramat-Gan, Israel. Distributed in the US by ISBS.
Annotation ©2004 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
This book is an expression of how the different memories of different gendered experiences affected the Jewish attitudes towards modernity. Focusing on three geographical centers - pre-war and wartime Europe, the United States and Israel, the fifteen articles provide a backdrop to understanding the variation of Jewish life and identity.
