High Quality Content by WIKIPEDIA articles! High Quality Content by WIKIPEDIA articles! The Committee for Accuracy in Middle East Reporting in America (CAMERA) is a Boston-based, 501(c)(3) nonprofit, pro-Israel media watchdog group. The group says it was founded in 1982 "to respond to the Washington Post's coverage of Israel's Lebanon incursion, and to the paper's general anti-Israel bias". CAMERA is known for its pro-Israel media monitoring and advocacy. CAMERA releases reports to counter what it calls "frequently inaccurate and skewed characterizations of Israel and of events in the Middle East" that it believes may fuel anti-Israel and anti-Jewish prejudice.

India boasts of three principal Jewish communities, namely, the Bene Israel, Cochinis and Baghdadis. Among them, the Bene Israel have been the most Indianized of the lot. From a very early period, the Bene Israel Jews took an active part in the military and naval expeditions of the indigenous rulers like the Angrias and Shivaji. They also made their mark as soldiers and officers in the service of the English East India Company. Military service not only took them to different parts of India, but also to faraway places such as Afghanistan, Burma and Egypt. They served with utmost distinction and bravery in all the campaigns both within the country and abroad and British military records spoke highly of the valour of these soldiers. Despite their prowess, all was not smooth sailing for the Bene Israel, since British racial prejudice insisted on the maintenance of European and Eurasian troops. As a result, many of the Bene Israel Jews shifted to white-collar jobs in the civilian sector. When India attained freedom, many members of the Bene Israel community continued to serve with honour.

Handbook of Ethnic Conflict
203,50 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Ethnopolitical conflicts are world-wide phenomena producing discrimination, violence, and at times, unspeakable atrocities. Two thirds of international conflicts today are ethnopolitical conflicts. Some are long-entrenched disputes dating back centuries. Others are the by-products of recent trends in immigration or politics.The Handbook of Ethnopolitical Conflict and Resolution examines the social, psychological, historical and political underpinnings of these conflicts particularly the ethnic, cultural, religious, and national identities that feed ingroup/outgroup antagonistic perceptions and fuel cycles of aggression. It covers leading theories and models of interethnic conflict and provides in-depth analyses of twenty conflicts as diverse as those in Croatia, the Democratic Republic of the Congo, France, Israel, and New Zealand. It examines phenomena that have not received the attention they deserve, such as the obstacles presented by differing accounts of the origins and dynamics of given conflict. In each case, and in the book s concluding chapter, contributors suggest creative responses to ethnic friction utilizing innovative intercultural approaches, conflict management approaches, and peace-building strategies.Major features: Worldwide coverage: includes conflicts in Southeast Asia, China, the Pacific Rim, the Middle East, Latin America, Africa, Western Europe, and the Balkans. Extensive analyses of the dynamics of interethnic hostility as well as of the relevant current and historical social, psychological, political and economic conditions. Contributors from a variety of cultures and disciplines. Comparisons across diverse conflicts in the concluding chapter. Suggestions for diminishing prejudice and discrimination, and improving inter-ethnic relations in multi-ethnic states Policy recommendations for reducing ethnic conflict.Its unique presentation and wide range of information make the Handbook of Ethnopolitical Conflict an effective reference for professionals, researchers, and educators working to understand, minimize, and eliminate interethnic conflict.Valuable for social psychologists, cross-cultural psychologists, political scientists, sociologists, communications scholars, and policymakers, ultimately, the Handbook is an important source for all persons who wish to contribute to a more peaceful world.

While most studies of the stresses experienced by minorities, migrants, and refugees focus on North America, this work assumes an unusually broad scope. African-Americans, Latin Americans, Hutterites, Southeast Asians, and Native Americans are all considered in the context of the U.S. and Canada. However, separate chapters also discuss North Africans in France, Turks in Belgium, native culture in New Zealand, Jews inside and outside Israel, Gypsies in Europe, and Germans migrating west in their newly united nation. This unique look at the stresses facing such groups is an important resource for researchers, practitioners, and graduate students in clinical psychology, counseling, and psychiatric social work. TOC:Introduction.- Ethnicity, Immigration and Psychopathology. The Psychology of Prejudice and Discrimination.- Ethnic Groups and Immigrants in North America. Southeast Asian Refugees in Canada. Refugees and Immigrants in Quebec. Social Stress and Psychological Distress Among Latinos in the United States. Mental Illness Among African Americans. The Hutterite Colonies: Stress and Coping in the Context of Communal Life.- Ethnic Groups and Migrants in Europe. Psychosocial Stress and the Process of Coping Among East German Migrans.

The Jewish Writings
28,90 CHF *

Although Hannah Arendt is not primarily known as a Jewish thinker, she probably wrote more about Jewish issues than any other topic. As a young adult in Germany, she wrote about German Jewish history. After moving to France in 1933, she helped Jewish youth immigrate to Palestine. During her years in Paris, her principle concern was the transformation of antinomianism from prejudice to policy, which would culminate in the Nazi 'final solution.' After France fell, Arendt escaped from an internment camp and made her way to America. There she wrote articles calling for a Jewish army to fight the Nazis. After the war, she supported the creation of a Jewish homeland in a binational (Arab-Jewish) state of Israel. Arendt's original conception of political freedom cannot be fully grasped apart from her experience as a Jew. In 1961 she attended Adolf Eichmann's trial in Jerusalem. Her report, Eichmann in Jerusalem, provoked an immense controversy, which culminated in her virtual excommunication from the worldwide Jewish community. Today that controversy is the subject of serious re-evaluation, especially among younger people in the United States, Europe, and Israel. The publication of The Jewish Writings-much of which has never appeared before-traces Arendt's life and thought as a Jew. It will put an end to any doubts about the centrality, from beginning to end, of Arendt's Jewish experience.

The book that launched bestselling author Robert Whitlow’s career! “Fans of John Grisham will find much to like here.” —Library Journal review of The Confession In a world of secrets, where evil has reigned for over a hundred years, the power of an ancient covenant will change the life of one man forever. As a struggling young attorney fresh out of law school, Renny Jacobson pines for the day he can afford the luxuries of the partners in his Charlotte firm. With news of his father's death and a secret inheritance, Renny's life will surely change forever. But the clandestine society that provides the inheritance soon threatens to change him in more ways than one. Renny's life, and the life of the woman he loves, depend on supernatural deliverance from the curse of The List. “My verdict for Robert Whitlow’s Chosen People: compelling, realistic and inspiring. Robert combines the intensity of a legal battle against terrorists with a poignant depiction of Israel, with all of its tensions and grandeur.” —Randy Singer, bestselling author of Rule of Law “Whitlow’s timely story shines a spotlight on prejudice, race, and the pursuit of justice in a world bent on blind revenge. Fans of Greg Iles’s Natchez Burning will find this just as compelling if not more so.” —Library Journal, starred review of A Time to Stand
