Religion and Philosophy in Germany (June 1986)
Heinrich Heine - Author
John Snodgrass - Translator

The Holocaust in American Jewish Fiction
Alan L. Berger - Author

I am convinced that this book will be an important contribution to the understanding of events and issues that defy understanding.

"Much has been written about the theology of the Holocaust, and also about the literature of the Holocaust. What Alan Berger has done is to combine both. Furthermore, he deals more with writers than with concepts, or rather: he deals with concepts through the works of writers." -- Elie Wiesel, Andrew W. Mellon ...(Read More)
Education in the Third Reich
Education in the Third Reich (June 1985)
Race and History in Nazi Textbooks
Gilmer W. Blackburn - Author

In its determination to take absolute control, the Third Reich focused on the nation's youth, reserving for the schools the vital task of refashioning the German psyche. This book examines these propaganda efforts--one of the most radical and far-reaching experiments in educational history.

The book focuses on the manipulation of the German past, one of the primary means of state intervention to ensure the triumph of the racial idea in histo...(Read More)

Narrative Strategies in the Works of Isaac Bashevis Singer
David Neal Miller - Author

David Neal Miller's Fear of Fiction is the first book-length study that begins with the understanding that Singer is truly a Yiddish writer in language and culture. With the exception of a handful of articles, American critical examination of Isaac Bashevis Singer's work has been devoted to Singer's work in English--to those pieces he himself has selected for translation. This American Nobel laureate is part of a long tradition of Yiddish l...(Read More)
Mutuality (June 1985)
The Vision of Martin Buber
Donald L. Berry - Author

This is an elegant book. By skillfully blending meticulous scholarship with points of genuine human interest, Donald Berry gives fresh insight into Martin Buber's vision of mutuality. Berry focuses on Buber's I and Thou to illuminate three facets of Buber's thought that have been largely neglected. In chapters titled “The Tree,” “The Helper,” and “The Brother,” Berry shows how Buber’s underl...(Read More)

Motivated by moral outrage, a small number of individuals in America today is vigorously protesting the presence here of accused Nazi war criminals and collaborators. The Outraged Conscience documents their individual efforts.

A vital addition to the literature on the Holocaust, this book looks closely at the separate activities of these dedicated seekers of just...(Read More)

Essays on Ahad Ha'am
Jacques Kornberg - Editor

A founding father of modern Israel, Ahad Ha-am (1856-1927) was one of the shapers of the contemporary Zionist consciousness. His career spanned the era of Russian Jewry's nationalist awakening. During the last decade of the nineteenth century, he was the leading theorist of the Russian Zionist movement. Afterwards, he was overshadowed by Theodore Herzl, who imposed his own stamp on Zionism. With the failure of Herzl's diplomacy and his ...(Read More)
Galveston (June 1984)
Ellis Island of the West

While the massive flow of immigrants to the Northeast was taking place, a number of Jews were finding their way to America through the port of Galveston, Texas. The descendants of these immigrants, now scattered throughout the United States, are hardly aware that their ancestors participated in a unique attempt to organize and channel Jewish immigration. From their recruitment in Eastern Europe to their settlement in the American West, these immig...(Read More)
