Abstract:

Annotation Eight essays address the relation of any specific beginningof a text, a book, an argument, a narrativeto the originary moment of Jewish textual tradition. The two fundamental approaches are attending to the quotidian and obvious notion that any textual work claims a beginning, and the connection between rhetorical and cultural moves. No credentials are noted for the contributors. There is no index. Distributed in the US by Stylus. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com).

Annotation Representing the full spectrum of subfields within Jewish Studies, the contributing scholars to this volume use "beginnings" as a hermeneutic stance to analyze texts in their area. While each essay is a significant contribution to its own subfield - Bible, Talmud, Kabbalah, Modern Jewish Thought, Feminist and Cultural Studies - the essays taken as a whole present new possibilities for exploring the space that is Jewish Studies and beginning an inquiry into what might constitute a definable hermeneutics of Jewish texts.
