  2. Jewish Eating and Identity Through the Ages

    By David C. Kraemer

    Series: Routledge Advances in Sociology

  4. The Hidden Philosophy of Hannah Arendt

    By Margaret Betz Hull

    Jewish Philosophical Perspectives

    By Daniel H. Frank

  6. Politics and Violence in Israel/Palestine

    Democracy versus Military Rule

    By Lev Luis Grinberg

Drawing on detailed academic research and a broad...
