Colonialism and the Jews, Hardback Book

Description

The lively essays collected here explore colonial history, culture, and thought as it intersects with Jewish studies.

Connecting the Jewish experience with colonialism to mobility and exchange, diaspora, internationalism, racial discrimination, and Zionism, the volume presents the work of Jewish historians who recognize the challenge that colonialism brings to their work and sheds light on the diverse topics that reflect the myriad ways that Jews engaged with empire in modern times.

Taken together, these essays reveal the interpretive power of the "Imperial Turn" and present a rethinking of the history of Jews in colonial societies in light of postcolonial critiques and destabilized categories of analysis.

A provocative discussion forum about Zionism as colonialism is also included.
