Secondly, it tries to identify the structural preconditions as well as specific triggers that turned anti-Jewish feelings into collective violence and analyzes the nature of this violence.

  • Circle of disquiet
  • Bones in the forest
  • Gin and two
  • In the barrel
  • Château Michel
  • Picnic in a cemetery
  • Patient number 9413
  • Jews in a whisper
  • Madness in the brain
  • The lark sings and falls
  • Death in the Holy Land
  • The ghosts of repetition
  • A single chain.
Award-winning New York Times columnist Roger Cohen turns a compassionate yet discerning eye on the legacy of his own forebears. As he follows them across continents and decades, mapping individual lives that diverge and intertwine, vital patterns of struggle and resilience, valued heritage and evolving loyalties (religious, ethnic, national), converge into a resonant portrait of cultural identity in the modern age. Beginning in the nineteenth century and continuing through to the present day, Cohen tracks his family's story of repeated upheaval, from Lithuania to South Africa, and then to England, the United States, and Israel. It is a tale of otherness marked by overt and latent anti-Semitism, but also otherness as a sense of inheritance. We see Cohen's family members grow roots in each adopted homeland even as they struggle to overcome the loss of what is left behind and to adapt. At the heart of The Girl from Human Street is the powerful and touching relationship between Cohen and his mother, that "girl." Tortured by the upheavals in her life yet stoic in her struggle, she embodies her son's complex inheritance.--From publisher description.

  • Introduction 1. Soviet Propaganda and Nationalist Reappropriation 2. Exigencies of Tradition 3. Catholic Enchantment and Discontent 4. Time-Spaces of a Reordered City 5. "Until You Grope the Ground": Food, Drink, and Modern Things Post-Socialist Scriptum Glossary of Frequently Cited Words and Phrases.

In The Land of Weddings and Rain, Gediminas Lankauskas examines the components of the contemporary urban wedding - religious and civil ceremonies, "traditional" imagery and practices, and the conspicuous consumption of domestic and imported goods - in the context of the Western-style modernization of post-socialist Lithuania. Studying the tensions between "tradition" and "modernity" that surround this important ritual event, Lankauskas highlights the ways in which nationalism serves to negotiate the impact of modernity in the aftermath of state socialism's collapse. His analysis also shows the importance of consumption and commodification to Lithuania's ongoing "Westernization." Based on more than a decade of ethnographic research, The Land of Weddings and Rain is a fascinating account of the tensions - between national and transnational, East and West, and old and new - that shape life in post-socialist Eastern Europe.

Born into a leading Lithuanian-Jewish rabbinic family, Moshe Aron Reguer initially followed the path of traditional yeshiva education. His adolescence coincided with World War I and its upheavals, pandemics, and pogroms, as well as with new ideas of Haskala, Zionism, and socialism. His memoir, recently discovered and here translated and published for the first time, discusses his internal struggles and describes the world around him and the people who influenced him. Moshe Aron Reguer wrote his memoir at the age of 23, on the eve of his departure for Eretz Israel in 1926. However, his story did not end there, but continued in British Mandated Palestine and the United States. He kept in touch with the family in Brest-Litovsk until the Nazis destroyed Jewish Lithuania, and some of their correspondence is included within this volume.

Everyone knows Magic Johnson, Michael Jordan of the 1992 American Olympic Dream Team. This is the story of the Other Dream Team. They didn't bring their country the gold medal, they brought something much more valuable. After leading the USSR to a gold medal (and victory over the USA) at the 1988 Olympics in Seoul, Sarunas Marciulionis and Arvydas Sabonis were poster boys for the Soviet sports machine. Four years later, after the fall of the Soviet Union, they emerged as symbols of democracy.
