Israel Since 1980

Over the last quarter century, a radical demographic, economic and political transformation has been taking place from within Israel. Israelis are beginning to ask some fundamental questions about the country they live in and what it means to be an Israeli. This book, written by five Israeli academics, probes the changing nature of Israeli society over the last twenty-five years. It considers the deep rifts in that society caused by ethnic, cultural, class and religious divide. It looks at political and economic changes and how privatization has undermined the welfare state. It questions the role of the military in the light of the wider social and economic changes. Finally, and crucially, it asks whether new political initiatives can offer a realistic alternative to the inadequacies of recent governments. This is an informative account of Israel´s recent past and the challenges it faces in the twenty-first century.

Revolutionary Ideas
21,99 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Historians of the French Revolution used to take for granted what was also obvious to its contemporary observers - that the Revolution was shaped by the radical ideas of the Enlightenment. Yet in recent decades, scholars have argued that the Revolution was brought about by social forces, politics, economics, or culture - almost anything but abstract notions like liberty or equality. In Revolutionary Ideas, one of the worlds leading historians of the Enlightenment restores the Revolutions intellectual history to its rightful central role. Drawing widely on primary sources, Jonathan Israel shows how the Revolution was set in motion by radical eighteenth-century doctrines, how these ideas divided revolutionary leaders into vehemently opposed ideological blocs, and how these clashes drove the turning points of the Revolution.

The Hebrew Bible is hardly what might be called a ´´unified´´ account of the national history of Israel. The texts, with their myriad genres and competing perspectives, show the forming and re-forming of Ancient Israel´s social body in a number of geographical settings. The communities are shown in and out of political power. We read about in-fighting and peace, good kings and bad, freedom and subjugation. Ultimately, the Hebrew Bible is a text about nationhood and empire in the ancient world. Critical reflection on the intersections of religious and political life -- which includes such topics as sovereignty, leadership, law, peoplehood, hospitality, redemption, creation, and eschatology -- can be broadly termed ´´Political Theology.´´ In Locations of God , Mark G. Brett focuses primarily on the historical books of the Bible, comparing them with selected prophetic and wisdom books, setting all of them against the lived realities under the shadow of successive empires. Brett suggests that national ideas and their imperial alternatives were woven into the biblical traditions by authors who enjoyed very little in the way of political sovereignty. Using political theology to motivate the discussion, Brett shows us just how the earthly situation of ancient Israel contributed to its theology as reflected in the Hebrew Bible.

Die ´´Generation Instagram´´ ist einsame Spitze im Retuschieren von Makeln und Mängeln. Sie weiß, dass hinter der durchgestylten Fassade meist nicht das drinsteckt, was draufsteht. Auf der Suche nach Echtheit (#nofilter), Natürlichkeit (#wokeuplikethis) und Wertschätzung (#selfie) verlieren sie sich selbst - und den Vergleich mit anderen. Von ihren Träumen bleiben oft nichts weiter als inspirierende Zitate unter Selfies übrig. Eine, die ihre Träume mit Schweiß, Blut und Tränen in die Tat umgesetzt hat, ist Tabea Oppliger. Für sie ist #nofilter nicht nur ein Hashtag, sondern Lifestyle. Ungeschliffen, echt und relevant - so lebt sie ihr Leben im Kampf gegen moderne Sklaverei, Menschenhandel und Prostitution. Mitten im Schmelztiegel Tel Aviv/Israel setzt sie sich mit ihren Social Businesses ´´kite.pride´´ und ´´glowbalact´´ gegen Ungerechtigkeit ein. Sie weiß: Echtes Leben bedeutet ein Leben ohne Filter (#nofilter). Echte Schönheit entspringt dem Herzen. Echte Träume beginnen nur Wirklichkeit zu werden, wenn man sich dazu entscheidet, sie in die Tat umzusetzen. Tabea Oppligers Lebensstil, ihre Begeisterung und ihr Charisma sind ansteckend: Mit jeder Zeile dieses Buches wird der Leser herausgefordert, selbst aktiv zu werden, die eigene Berufung zu entdecken und einfach mal anzufangen - damit auf Hashtags Taten folgen und aus Träumen gelebte Wirklichkeit wird.

Makers of Worlds, Readers of Signs
22,99 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Makers of Worlds, Readers of Signs charts the aesthetic and political formation of neoliberalism and globalization in Israeli and Palestinian literature from the 1940s to the present. By tracking literature´s move from making worlds to reading signs, Cohen Lustig proposes a new way to read theorize our global contemporary. Cohen Lustig argues that the period of Israeli statism and its counterpart of Palestinian statelessness produced works that sought to make and create whole worlds and social time - create the new state of Israel, preserve collective visions of Palestinian statehood. During the period of neoliberalism, the period after 1985 in Israel and the 1993 Oslo Accords in Palestine, literature became about the reading of signs, where politics and history are now rearticulated through the private lives of individual subjects. Here characters do not make social time but live within it and inquire after its missing origin. Cohen Lustig argues for new ways to track the subjectivities and aesthetics produced by larger shifts in production. In so doing, he proposes a new model to understand the historical development of Israeli and Palestinian literature as well as world literature in our contemporary moment. With a preface from Fredric Jameson.

The History of Jews in Lithuania
99,00 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

This book presents a research of Lithuanian Jewish history and culture till the beginning of the twenty-first century. This study is an attempt by an international group of scholars from Lithuania, Israel, the United States of America and Germany to link different approaches towards the history of the Jews in East-Central Europe which in so far did not have many points of contact. It also aims to create an integral picture of the social, economic and cultural history of the Jews in Lithuania during the course of more than six hundred years. The main focus of this study is the relationships between the Lithuanian Jews, or Jews in Lithuania, and the dominant (Non-Jewish) majority, and the shifts in the collective identification of the Jews.

Hasidism
35,99 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

This is the first comprehensive history of the pietistic movement that shaped modern Judaism. The book´s unique blend of intellectual, religious, and social history offers perspectives on the movement´s leaders as well as its followers, and demonstrates that, far from being a throwback to the Middle Ages, Hasidism is a product of modernity that forged its identity as a radical alternative to the secular world. Hasidism originated in southeastern Poland, in mystical circles centered on the figure of Israel Baal Shem Tov, but it was only after his death in 1760 that a movement began to spread. Challenging the notion that Hasidism ceased to be a creative movement after the eighteenth century, this book argues that its first golden age was in the nineteenth century, when it conquered new territory, won a mass following, and became a mainstay of Jewish Orthodoxy. World War I, the Russian Revolution, and the Holocaust decimated eastern European Hasidism. But following World War II, the movement enjoyed a second golden age, growing exponentially. Today, it is witnessing a remarkable renaissance in Israel, the United States, and other countries around the world.

The Creation of the German-Jewish Diaspora
12,99 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

This book is first of its kind to deal with the interwar Jewish emigration from Germany in a comparative framework and follows the entire migration process from the point of view of the emigrants. It combines the usage of social and economic measures with the individual stories of the immigrants, thereby revealing the complex connection between the socio-economic profile varieties and the decisions regarding emigration - if, when and where to. The encounter between the various immigrant-refugee groups and the different host societies in different times produced diverse stories of presence, function, absorption and self-awareness in the three major overseas destinations - Palestine, the USA, and Great Britain -- despite the ostensibly common German-Jewish heritage. Thus German-Jewish immigrants created a new and nuanced fabric of the German-Jewish Diaspora in its main three centers, and shaped distinct identifications and legacies in Israel, Britain, and the United States.
