Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Four essays consider how Jews have represented themselves, six more examine how Jews and Judaism have been viewed by outsiders, and a final five combine the two perspectives. Among the topics are ritual memory for ancient Jews and modern Israelis, the discourse surrounding relations between Blacks and Jews, and the idea of the Jew in Henry James' novels. The papers were presented at a September 1995 symposium in Omaha, Nebraska. No index. Distributed by Fordham U.P. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
