Focusing on the decades from the 1930s through the 1960s, the author discusses the scientists, social scientists, philosophers and historians who fought the Christian biases that have kept Jews from fully participating in American intellectual life. The author shows that the liberal cosmopolitans of the mid century generation define themselves against the realities of their own time: McCarthyism, Nazi and Communist doctrines, a legacy of anti-Semitic quotas, and both Protestant and Catholic versions of the notion of a "Christian America". – Paraphrasing the dust jacket blurb Full number line.

The Aleppo Codex: a true story of obsession, faith, and the pursuit of an ancient bible
Friedman, Matti,
ISBN: 1921844809
Scribe Publications, Brunswick, Victoria, 2012. First Edition
 Softcover Softcover. Very Good Condition/. Illustrator: Photographs. First Edition. A clean copy with no damage to describe. This true-life detective story unveils the journey of a sacred text-the tenth-century annotated bible know as the Aleppo Codex-from its hiding place in a Syrian synagogue to the newly founded state of Israel. Based on documents kept secret for 50 years, as well as personal interviews with key figures, Matti Friedman proposes a new theory of what happened when the codex left Aleppo, Syria, in the late 1940s and eventually surfaced in Jerusalem, mysteriously incomplete. By recounting this history, Friedman explores the once vibrant Jewish communities in Islamic lands and follows the thread into the present, uncovering difficult truths about how the manuscript was taken to Israel and how its most important pages went missing. Along the way, he raises critical questions about who owns historical treasures and the role of myth and legend in the creation of a nation – Rear panel blurb This is the first Australian edition.

The Jews in Australia (A Volume in the Australian Ethnic Heritage Series)

ISBN: 0867872071
Australasian Educa Press, Victoria, 1986. First Edition
 Hardcover Hardcover. Very Good Condition/No Dust Jacket. Illustrator: Photographic. First Edition. 129 pages., Illustrated with black-and-white photographs, and tables, bibliography, indexed. "Jewish settlement in Australia is as old as English settlement: a handful of Jewish convicts arrived with the first Fleet. During the 19th century Jewish numbers were steadily augmented by free settlers from England and native born Australians. The traditions of achievement, combined with a familiarity with British ways which made them unique among the ethnic minorities of Australia, ideally equipped the early Australian Jews to succeed in the democratic atmosphere of the Colonies. In addition to its numerous members prominent in 19th century business, professional and political life, the Jewish community ultimately provided two of Australia's greatest leaders, Sir John Monash, and Sir Isaac Isaacs. Up to World War II Australian Jews were "Anglo-Saxon" and assimilationist in character -- sometimes at the expense of their Jewish heritage. All this dramatically changed with the arrival of the Jewish survivors of Hitler's Europe the size of the second European community and its commitment to the Jewish religion and culture have produced a remarkable burgeoning of Jewish synagogues, schools and organisations."
