9780199751471: The Peace and Violence of Judaism: From the Bible to Modern Zionism
Review:

"This is a work of breathtaking scope and innovative methodology. Deploying a wide range of texts, it demonstrates the ambivalence towards the resort to violence that has always characterized Jewish teachings. The result is an informed and sensitive discourse on the moral condition of the Jewish people, present as well as past, which is sure to become an essential point of departure for all future studies in the field."--Stuart Cohen, Professor of Political Studies, Bar-Ilan University, and author of Israel and Its Army "Professor Robert Eisen's masterful volume is the best in-depth study to date of peace and violence in Judaism, ancient, medieval and contemporary. He is unflinching in confronting the essential moral questions of Jewish self-definition, including Israel's conflict with the Palestinian people. This is a balanced account of Jewish sources that should be read by everyone, layman and scholar, Christian and Muslim. It is a profound paradigm of reflection and self-reflection."--Marc Gopin, James H. Laue Professor and Director of the Center for World Religions, Diplomacy and Conflict Resolution Institute for Conflict Analysis and Resolution, George Mason University "Robert Eisen has written a remarkable book on a subject of compelling historical and contemporary importance. He has set a high standard for what hopefully will be comparable works that others will write on Christianity and Islam."--Rev. Dr. David Smock, Director, Religion and Peacemaking Program, United States Institute of Peace "Eisen carefully examines both sides of the coin and grapples with the potential good or harm that emerges throught particular interpretations of Jewish tradition."--Lynn Gottlieb"Eisen's overview provided a welcome corrective to the reductionist indictments of Richard Harris, Richard Dawkins, Christopher Hitchens, and others who fabricate a categorical boogeyman known as 'religion' and argue that it is essentially, an

Review:

This innovative exploration of the potential for the promotion of both peace and violence within Judaism arising from its inherent ambiguities leads Eisen to a thought-provoking consideration of constructive ethics and his conclusion that pragmatic concerns might legitimately be considered alongside the textual evidence in accepting a reading that Judaism inspires and promotes peace rather than violence. ( Dorothy M. Peters, Journal of Semitic Studies)

Descripción Oxford University Press Inc, United States, 2011. Hardback. Estado de conservación: New. New.. 239 x 157 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. Robert Eisen provides the first comprehensive analysis of Jewish views on peace and violence, examining five major sources of Jewish thought - the Bible, rabbinic Judaism, medieval Jewish philosophy, Kabbalah, and modern Zionism. He demonstrates that throughout its history Judaism has consistently exhibited ambiguity regarding peace and violence. To make his case, Eisen presents two separate analyses for each of the areas he examines: one that argues for a peaceful reading of Judaism, and another that argues for a violent reading. The aim is to show that both readings are valid and authentic interpretations of Judaism. Eisen also explores why Judaism can be read both ways by examining the interpretive techniques that support each reading. This study should be of interest not just to students of Judaism, but to students of all religious traditions: the ambiguity concerning violence in Judaism is true of many other religions as well. Eisen s study therefore provides a model for analyzing peace and violence in religion in general. Nº de ref. de la librería AAS9780199751471
