Book Description :

Taking his lead from his subject, Gershom Scholem—the 20th century thinker who cracked open Jewish theology and history with a radical reading of Kabbalah—Prochnik combines biography and memoir to counter our contemporary political crisis with an original and urgent reimagining of the future of Israel. In Stranger in a Strange Land, Prochnik revisits the life and work of Gershom Scholem, whose once prominent reputation, as a Freud-like interpreter of the inner world of the Cosmos, has been in eclipse in the United States. He vividly conjures Scholem’s upbringing in Berlin, and compellingly brings to life Scholem’s transformative friendship with Walter Benjamin, the critic and philosopher. In doing so, he reveals how Scholem’s frustration with the bourgeois ideology of Germany during the First World War led him to discover Judaism, Kabbalah, and finally Zionism, as potent counter-forces to Europe’s suicidal nationalism. Prochnik’s own years in the Holy Land in the 1990s brings him to question the stereotypical intellectual and theological constructs of Jerusalem, and to rediscover the city as a physical place, rife with the unruliness and fecundity of nature. Prochnik ultimately suggests that a new form of ecological pluralism must now inherit the historically energizing role once played by Kabbalah and Zionism in Jewish thought.

High Quality Content by WIKIPEDIA articles! Stranger in a Strange Land is a 1961 science fiction novel by American author Robert A. Heinlein. It tells the story of Valentine Michael Smith, a human who comes to Earth in early adulthood after being born on the planet Mars and raised by Martians. The novel explores his interaction with-and eventual transformation of-terrestrial culture. The title seems an allusion to the phrase in Exodus 2:22 (in the Biblical Book of Exodus). According to Heinlein, the novel's working title was The Heretic. Several later editions of the book have promoted it as "The most famous Science Fiction Novel ever written."

Book Description :

Manning examines the formation of nineteenth-century intelligentsia print publics in the former Soviet republic of Georgia both anthropologically and historically. At once somehow part of “Europe,” at least aspirationally, and yet rarely recognized by others as such, Georgia attempted to forge European style publics as a strong claim to European identity. These attempts also produced a crisis of self-defi nition, as European Georgia sent newspaper correspondents into newly reconquered Oriental Georgia, only to discover that the people of these lands were strangers. In this encounter, the community of “strangers” of European Georgian publics proved unable to assimilate the people of the “strange land” of Oriental Georgia. This crisis produced both notions of Georgian public life and European identity which this book explores.

Book Description :

From 1933-45 ca. 20-25,000 Jewish refugees lived, for various periods, in Hungary; in addition, a number of Jews entered the country in the fall of 1939 as part of the wave of Polish military and civil refugees. The National Central Alien Control Office (Külföldieket Ellenőrző Országos Központi Hatóság, KEOKH) affiliated with the Interior Ministry, was established in order to supervise the foreigners (Jewish and non-Jewish) living in Hungary. Rapidly, the KEOKH turned into a "de-Jewification commando", predating the Eichmann commando, which came to Hungary after the country's German occupation in 1944. The KEOKH not only prevented attempts by alien Jews to obtain a citizenship certificate, but also re-classified many Jews born in Hungary as "alien". It participated in deportations of these Jews from Hungary, in full knowledge that such deportations meant death, as in the deportations to Kamenets-Podolskii in 1941 and to Slovakia in 1942 and later. These policies of the Hungarian state and society contrast with the policies concerning Polish non-Jewish refugees. The Hungarian political elite, that was prepared to break the law and confront its German allies in order to admit tens of thousands of Poles, deported the "undesirable" Jews in 1941-44. In 1944 thousands of Jews, both refugees and Hungarians, tried to flee the country only to be confronted with a tightening of border controls in Hungary and a reluctance to admit them by neighboring countries.

Book Description :

A vivid critique of American life today and a guide to how Christians—and particularly Catholics--can live their faith vigorously, and even with hope, in a post-Christian public square. From Charles J. Chaput, author of Living the Catholic Faith and Render unto Caesar comes Strangers in a Strange Land, a fresh, urgent, and ultimately hopeful treatise on the state of Catholicism and Christianity in the United States. America today is different in kind, not just in degree, from the past. And this new reality is unlikely to be reversed. The reasons include, but aren't limited to, economic changes that widen the gulf between rich and poor; problems in the content and execution of the education system; the decline of traditional religious belief among young people; the shift from organized religion among adults to unbelief or individualized spiritualities; changes in legal theory and erosion in respect for civil and natural law; significant demographic shifts; profound new patterns in sexual behavior and identity; the growth of federal power and its disregard for religious rights; the growing isolation and elitism of the leadership classes; and the decline of a sustaining sense of family and community.
