: A World Problem, Jews, Poland, Humanity: A Psychological And Historical Study, Part 1;A Politically-Incorrect WWI-Era Classic on Poland's Jews

Tuesday, November 22, 2016
My review is based on the English-language, two-volumes-in-one 1917-1920 edition.

Nowadays, books on Polish-Jewish relations adhere to the Manichean view of the Jewish victim and the intolerant Pole. [This has been a trope in Jewish writing for at least a century, as is obvious from p. 67]. The present book perhaps goes too far in the opposite direction. If so, the student of Polish-Jewish relations can use this book to counterbalance the other, modern extreme, and come up with a middle, Judeorealistic view of Jewish-Polish relations. >>more...

Nazi Germany explained; Insights Into the Neo-Pagan Aspects of Nazism

Tuesday, November 22, 2016
The author provides an early-1930s British perspective on the Nazi movement in Germany. Owing to the fact that this work long precedes WWII and the Holocaust, it is not colored by these events. >>more...

: Antisemitism: Its History and Cause;Universality of Anti-Semitism. Especially Good on Anti-Semitism in Pre-Christian Antiquity

Tuesday, November 22, 2016
The author was a French Jew, and professed to offer a middle view--between that of the anti-Semite and the philo-Semite. (p. 5). My review is based on the original 1903 English-language edition of the 1894 French work. Owing to its comprehensiveness, I can only focus on a few issues.

: Cursing the Christians?: A History of the Birkat HaMinim;The Long History of a Jewish Malediction Against Christianity. A Call for Mutual Self-Examination. The HAREDIM's Conduct,

Tuesday, November 22, 2016
This is a fascinating, technical book. The author traces the history of the BIRKAT HAMINIM from antiquity, through the Middle Ages, and to modern times. In recent times, this prayer has been softened, with removal of reference to enemies, and with the condemnation of evil, as an abstraction, having replaced the condemnation of sinners. (pp. 156-on). >>more...

The Jewish Lobby in Pland;A Comprehensive Analysis of Polish-Jewish Relations to the Present. Includes Valuable Information About the Holocaust Industry,

Tuesday, November 22, 2016
THE JEWISH POLITICAL LOBBY IN POLAND is the title of this Polish-language book. This work focuses on specific Jewish organizations in Poland. However, this book goes far beyond the subject of Jewish influence in Poland. It also covers a lot of shared Polish-Jewish history. Because this work presents much information, I focus on a few items. >>more...

The Construction of Nationhood: Ethnicity, Religion and Nationalism;Nations and Nationalism Emerged Long Before the Enlightenment. Clergy Unite Peasants and Landlords in National Consciousness,

Tuesday, November 22, 2016
This book is written to counter the “modernist” interpretation of nations as exemplified by Eric Hobsbawm, Benedict Anderson, and Ernest Geller. The author begins with medieval Europe. However, time and time again, author Adrian Hastings returns to ancient Israel as an example of a nation. (p. 3, 18, 186). >>more...

Jewish racism;British Jewish Scholar Comes Close to Admitting the Jewish Racism in the Talmud. He Also Features Early Jewish Universalism

Tuesday, November 22, 2016
The author is Professor of Rabbinic Judaism at University College London. He identifies himself as an Orthodox Jew. (p. xxii).

In his assiduous analysis of rabbinical literature, author Sacha Stern employs Talmudic sources (Mishna, Tosefta, Yerushalmi, and Bavli), many different Midrashim, and other sources. (pp. xi-xii). As part of my review of this and related works, I have regularly consulted the online Babylonian Talmud (Soncino edition), and have included specific references to it below. All my specific references below are from the Bavli, in CAPS, and from this online source. >>more...

Hidden Gold: A True Story of the Holocaust ;Atypical Insights on the Daunting Challenges that Faced the Polish Rescuers of Jews

Tuesday, November 22, 2016
Many reviews already provide the reader with a synopsis of this book, and, instead of repeating them, I focus on generally-unmentioned issues. Author Ella Burakowski, born long after the war, is the daughter of Shoshana and her sister Esther, and the grandchild of Leib and Hanna Gold. The setting of this Holocaust-survival memoir is Pinczow, Kolkow, Dzialoszyce, and surrounding towns. >>more...

What Hitler Wants;Nazism-From the Start-Imitates Communism in Order to Fight Communism. National Socialism is Indeed a Manifestation of Socialism,

Tuesday, November 22, 2016
This work has the advantage that it precedes WWII and the Holocaust, and so is not colored by these events. It does not spend much time on Nazi anti-Semitism. However, Hitler, in 1928, wrote of confiscating land that had been illegally acquired or which was not being used for the benefit of the community. This was in reference to Jewish Societies that speculated in land. (p. 87). >>more...
