The anti-journalist Karl Kraus and Jewish self-fashioning in fin-de-siècle Europe by Paul Reitter ( )
10 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 1,577 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Reitter's study of Kraus's writings situates them in the context of fin-de-siècle German-Jewish intellectual history. He argues that rather than stemming from anti-Semitism, Kraus' attacks constituted a constructive critique of mainstream German-Jewish strategies for assimilation
On the origins of Jewish self-hatred by Paul Reitter ( )
5 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 1,092 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Today, the term ""Jewish self-hatred"" often denotes a treasonous brand of Jewish self-loathing, and is frequently used as a smear, such as when it is applied to politically moderate Jews who are critical of Israel. In On the Origins of Jewish Self-Hatred, Paul Reitter demonstrates that the concept of Jewish self-hatred once had decidedly positive connotations. He traces the genesis of the term to Anton Kuh, a Viennese-Jewish journalist who coined it in the aftermath of World War I, and shows how the German-Jewish philosopher Theodor Lessing came, in 1930, to write a book that popula
The Kraus project : essays : a bilingual edition by Karl Kraus ( Book )

Franzen presents new translations and annotations of the work of early twentieth-century satirist Karl Kraus, who, via his self-published magazine Die Fackel, "attacked the popular media's manipulation of reality, the dehumanizing machinery of technology and consumer capitalism, and the jingoistic rhetoric of a fading empire"--Dust jacket flap
Reflections of German Jewry. Portraits and self-portraits by Paul Reitter ( Book )
1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
German Jewry'. Among other things - or rather, above all - the term evokes creativity and destruction. 'Reflections of German Jewry' is about both sides of that dichotomy, and also the links between them. It is about the German Jews - such as Heine, Freud, and Kafka - whose accomplishments have played such a significant role in shaping our modern sensibilities. And it is about the figures and forces - e.g., Hitler, Jew hatred, and racism - that effectively wiped out the Jewish presence in Germany. Reflections of German Jewry is also about how the pressures generated by anti-Semitism and the experience of exile helped at a terrible price to drive German Jewry to its intellectual successes. Finally, Reitter reflects on attempts to tell the stories of these makers and destroyers, and the cultural dynamics in which they were enmeshed. Indeed, in large part that, too, is the subject of these reflections - the act of writing about the life and the demise of German Jewry
