   schema:description "The emergence of the Jewish State of Israel has fundamentally changed the conditions of Jewish existence. Yet the immense changes that have taken place since 1945 have rarely been comprehensively analysed. Terms of Survival sets out to fill this need, and to take stock of the Jewish world as it has emerged from the catastrophe of the Holocaust. From a wide-ranging perspective, the book considers the demographic, occupational and behavioural transformations in Jewry. Contributors examine the new Jewish politics in Israel, the USA, Europe and the ex-USSR, changing religious patterns among Jews and new perceptions of them. Also considered are the ways in which some of the problems confronting contemporary Jews have found expression in literature. The book reflects the way in which post-war Jewry has become both more self-assertive in the defence of its interests, and more uncertain in the light of continuing anti-semitism."@en ;
   schema:description "Terms of Survival provides a vital aid to the process of reassessment and reflection on the terms of survival now confronting the Jewish people. It will be of great interest to students of history and Jewish studies, and to all those interested in current Jewish issues."@en ;
