The New Jewish Argentina PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

The New Jewish Argentina free pdf The New Jewish Argentina aims at filling in important lacunae in the existing historiography of Jewish Argentines. Moving away from the political history of the organized community, most articles are devoted to social and cultural history, including unaffiliated Jews, women and gender, criminals, printing presses and book stores. These essays, written by scholars from various countries, consider the tensions between the national and the trans-national and offer a mosaic of identities which is relevant to all interested in Jewish history, Argentine history and students of ethnicity and Diaspora. This collection problematizes the existing image of Jewish-Argentines and looks at Jews not just as either persecuted ethnics, idealized agricultural workers, or as political actors in Zionist politics.
