Based on The Blackwell Companion to Jewish Culture published in 1989, the new Encyclopedia of Modern Jewish Culture has been completely updated and revised. As far as Jewish culture in its broadest sense is concerned, much has changed during last 14 years. Jewish demography has altered. Social, political, and religious structures have radically changed, and new communities have emerged. Ultra-Orthodox and religious nationalist militancy in Israel and Jewish fundamentalism worldwide have grown, and counteractive movements have been founded--especially in the US, changing diaspora Jewish political culture. Holocaust-related study and activities have also greatly increased. Written by experts from all over the world, this updated two-volume set reflects all these recent changes, making it a timely addition for both academic and public libraries. Covering the humanities, arts, social sciences, sport, and popular culture in both biographical and topic entries ranging from 200 to 1000 words, culture is defined very broadly. In addition, there are also 5000 word essays, predominantly written by scholars and academics, which contextualize the shorter entries, and provide overviews to aspects of culture in the Jewish world

"This book brings together discussions of the way in which Muslim and Jewish beliefs and practices are represented in modern literary texts of poetry, fiction and drama." "The chapters collected here consider elements of the expression of Judaism and Islam in modern literature. Key topics such as religious ideas and teachings, aspects of mysticism, the tenets of religion, uses made of sacred texts, religion and popular culture and reflections of religious controversies are covered. While there is an embodied comparative element to the chapters, the essays are not confined by comparisons and cover a wide range of the literary expression of religious issues."--BOOK JACKET
