the Talmud. Insights Into the Jewish Abomination of Pork

Friday, July 31, 2015
This book, authored by Talmudic scholar Adin Steinsaltz, provides a useful general overview of Jewish beliefs and customs, notably those of the Talmud. However, I agree with those reviewers who feel that the book is too shallow, that it provides insufficient concrete examples to illustrate its main points, and that one of its chief shortcomings is an absence of specific reference to Talmudic verses. >>more...

International Bankers. Not Only Jews--Far From It. Post-WWI German Reparations

This very detailed, scholarly book, is a tour de force. It is best known for its analysis of international capitalism. (My review is based on the original 1966 edition). I focus on it.

Shattered Spaces: Encountering Jewish Ruins in Postwar Germany and Poland Hardcover – December 1, 2011

Tuesday, July 14, 2015
Having read and reviewed hundreds of works on Poland's Jews, being unfamiliar with the author, and learning of the acclaim that this book has gotten, I had expected much more of it. It turned out to be a disappointing repetition of tired, Judeocentric ideas amidst a body of novel information on Germany. This book tacitly juxtaposes Germany and Poland, which itself is objectionable in that it relativizes the two in the reader's mind. In this review, I focus exclusively on Poland. >>more...

Myths and realities in eastern Europe

Wednesday, May 27, 2015
The author surveys the claims of nations and nationalities in some detail. Unfortunately, he treats all the conflicting claims on a more-or-less coeval basis—as if all the claims had equivalent credibility and support.

I focus on a few items of lasting interest.
