The last Jews of Kerala : the two thousand year history of India's forgotten Jewish community by Edna Fernandes( Book )

6 editions published between 2008 and 2015 in English and held by 463 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In 70 CE, the Roman capture of Jerusalem and the destruction of the Second Temple scattered a wave of Jewish immigrants across the globe. One group--attracted by the tropical environment and a history of lucrative trade--chose to settle in the Kerala region of southwestern India. Feted as foreign kings by Kerala's rajas, and lavished with land, privilege, and autonomy, they enjoyed a harmony that is rare in their history. Despite living in peace with their Hindu, Muslim, and Christian neighbors, they were plagued by division from within. Separated by a narrow stretch of swamp an the color of their skin, the White Jews of Mattancherry and the Black Jews of Ernakulam engaged in centuries of acrimonious dispute over who arrived first in India. The resulting apartheid led to too few marriages, too few children, and an ever-declining population. In this book, journalist Edna Fernandes details the history of Kerala's Jews as chronicled by written records and the personal accounts of its less than 50 remaining Jewish inhabitants. Fernandes's narrative takes us on a voyage from King Solomon's Israel to the West coast of modern-day India, moving between the great intercontinental migrations of early modern history and the tragicomic feud of Jew Town which has brought Kerala's Jewry to its knees

Como meios de dissolucao, empregaram-se agua destilada e solucao aquosa com variacao gradual de pH.

Tal fato poderia traduzir-se em comportamentos diferenciados em relacao a sua biodisponibilidade e bioequivalencia. (AU)
