Jews' State Jason Aronson Inc. Publishers
Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna
The translator writes: "The Jews' State" is over one hundred years old. The work is both catalyst and prophecy. Catalyst: Speaking both to Jews and to the international community, it virtually launched the modern debate about a modern state for Jews. Prophecy: it foretold the entire scope of this debate, its timing, its spread, its nature, its parameters. It is all there in embryo for us to read and ponder. This little book continues to inform conceptions and arguments about the position on Jews in their state and in the world, and about the relationship between Jews and their fellow human beings. In a very real sense, it still deeply guides how we view the contemporary Middle East. Translated and retranslated countless times and into many languages since it was published, this present translation is one of only three English versions that have been attempted in the century since its first publication, the first in English in twenty-five years. Its concerns are both text and context. Though the text has been with us ever since is publication, it is the context that needs recreating. Among the factors that have created distance between us and the world in which The Jews' State was created include: The experience of the world and the Jewish community during the last century, the salience of anti-Semitism, the Holocaust, the formations and development of the state of Israel, the troubled existence of the Jewish state ever since its inception, the continuing Jewish diaspora and its relationship with the state and world. The common understandings which Theodore Herzl assumed in his readers have dissipated and vanished, and with them a sense of his book's import and impact. These understandings need to be retrieved and recreated. The present edition is therefore an attempt both at presentation and retrieval: Presentation of the text in the language of today: retrieval of the context which gave rise to it. This dual function informs the three main parts of this edition. Its first part is an account of the ideological and social worlds in which Herzl worked and wrote, the Jewish world and the mainstream world, and it argues that Herzl's interaction with both these worlds rests on some complex attitudes on his part in which approval, compliance, critique, and rejection all played a role. There follows a section on The Jews' State itself, which picks up on the main themes that occupied Herzl, and discusses their scope and treatment. This first part finishes with a description of the initial impact of The Jews' State on Herzl's world. The second part of this edition offers a presentation of the text itself, in the form of a translation, which attempts to recreate in a modern idiom the content of the work as well as some of the peculiarities of Herzl's style. The third part of this edition consists of a critical glossary, dealing with some salient issues in translation as well as the explanation of a number of terms and allusions in the text, whose meaning is not immediately obvious to modern readers. The edition closes with a bibliography."
Jeremiah 1-20 YALE UNIVERSITY PRESS
Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna
Jeremiah, long considered one of the most colorful of the ancient Israelite prophets, comes to life in Jack R. Lundbom's "Jeremiah 1-20". From his boyhood call to prophecy in 627 b.c.e., which Jeremiah tried to refuse, to his scathing judgments against the sins and hypocrisy of the people of Israel, Jeremiah charged through life with passion and emotion. He saw his fellow Israelites abandon their one true God, and witnessed the predictable outcome of their disregard for God's word - their tragic fall to the Babylonians.The first book of a three-volume "Anchor Bible" commentary, Jack R. Lundbom's eagerly awaited exegesis of "Jeremiah" investigates the opening twenty chapters of this Old Testament giant. With considerable skill and erudition, Lundbom leads modern readers through this prophet's often mysterious oracles, judgments, and visions. He quickly dispels the notion that the life and words of a seventh-century b.c.e. Israelite prophet can have no relevance for the contemporary reader. Clearly, Jeremiah was every bit as concerned as we are with issues like terrorism, hypocrisy, environmental pollution, and social justice.This impressive work of scholarship, essential to any biblical studies curriculum, replaces John Bright's landmark "Anchor Bible" commentary on "Jeremiah". Like its predecessor, "Jeremiah 1-20" draws on the best biblical scholarship to further our understanding of the weeping prophet and his message to the world.

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna
Excerpt from People's Dictionary of the Bible: Describing Persons, Places, Countries, Customs, Birds, Animals, Trees, Plants, Books, Events, and Many Other Things in Holy Scripture This work has been prepared for the multitude who want a comprehensive, concise, handy Dictionary of the Bible for Twenty-five cents. Bulky, learned, expensive, denominational, controversial, and theological dictionaries are abundant. But Bible readers, lay missionaries, members of Christian Endeavor Societies, guilds, leagues. King's Daughters, Sunday-schools and other organizations helpful to the young are often at a loss in their labors, from the lack of an inexpensive Bible Dictionary fairly abreast of present Biblical Scholarship, and free from denominational bias, technical theological terms, unsound teachings, and lengthy discussions - a dictionary for handy and quick reference. This work is for them. Some Christian friends who felt the need of such a work, urged the Editor to prepare it, and generously provided the funds to pay the cost of its preparation and donated the plates to the American Sunday-School Union, so that this Dictionary might be sold at a price that would encourage a large distribution of it, and put it within the reach of all. The following principles have guided in the preparation of the work: 1. To present the results of the best scholarly information in respect to persons, places, customs, and subjects mentioned in the Bible, in alphabetical order and in a simple and concise style. 2. To define such words and topics only as are found in the English Bible, and to give an explanation of any peculiar use or meaning of them. 3. To admit no name or word, about which nothing is known except the mere mention of it in the Bible. 4. Carefully to exclude whatever would be regarded as sectarian or denominational by any body of Evangelical Christians. It is needless to add that this did not exclude any Bible terms. 5. To give the pronunciation and meaning of names and titles. Special attention has been given to some marked fulfilments of prophecy. The Appendix contains a list of parables and miracles in the Bible, tables of time, weights, measures, distances, and moneys, a list of obsolete words found in the Authorized Version, and of the titles and names of Christ, a list of stations in the Journeyings of Israel, and valuable Chronological tables.

Politica Liberty Fund Inc
Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna
Drawing deeply from Aristotle and biblical teaching, "Politic" presents a unique vision of the commonwealth as a harmonious ordering of natural associations. According to Althusius, the purpose of the state is to protect and encourage social life. The family is the most natural of human associations, and all other unions derive from it. Power and authority properly grow from more local to more general associations.Of particular interest to the modern reader is Althusius's theory of federalism. It does not refer merely to a division of powers between central and state governments, but to an ascending scale of authority in which higher institutions rely on the consent of local and voluntary associations.Johannes Althusius (1557-1638) was a German political and legal philosopher.Frederick S. Carn was Professor Emeritus of Ethics at the Perkins School of Theology, Southern Methodist University.Daniel J. Elazar is Director of the Center for the Study of Federalism at Temple University and Professor of Political Science at Temple and at Bar Ilan University in Israel.
Reading Palestine Signal Books
Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna
Reading Palestine: a Literary Guide looks without prejudice at Israel-Palestine through the eyes of writers from biblical times to the present day, allowing the region to come alive through the pens of such diverse personalities as Napoleon Bonaparte, Gustave Flaubert, Lord Curzon, T. E. Lawrence, Sacheverell Sitwell, Linda Grant and Howard Jacobson. With thematic introductions and explanatory notes, the selection includes Jewish, Christian, Muslim and secular writings as well as the contrasting narratives of Israeli and Palestinian identity. Before the creation of the nation state, the area was regarded as the Holy Land by all faiths. It was a part of the Ottoman Empire until 1917, then was Mandated to Britain after the First World War. After contradictory promises were made to Arabs and Jews alike, the region has since been disputed in one of the world's longest-running and internationally explosive disputes. This book encompasses the intellectual and social dimensions of the conflict, including the foundations of Zionism and the modern growth of Palestinian culture. But it also looks way beyond the conflict to look at fiction, poetry, costume and family life. From the architect of Zionism Theodor Herzl to modern Palestinian thinkers such as Edward Said, it explores opposite viewpoints and national loyalties. In works of the imagination it includes the writing of myriad and sometimes unexpected authors such as Mark Twain, Noel Coward, Mahatma Gandhi and Winston Churchill. Much more than another account of the conflict, this book gives voice to both Israeli and Palestinian writers as well as those from outside the region. It considers Palestine's long and much-mythologized history, its landscapes and cities and the way in which it has inspired generations of writers, artists and thinkers.
