Melanie Kaye/Kantrowitz, "The Colors of Jews: Racial Politics and Radical Diasporism"
Indiana University Press | 2007 | ISBN: 0253219272 | 296 pages | PDF | 3,2 MB
"Kaye/Kantrowitz is a courageous activist and thinker and her invigorating, illuminating book does what all great political writing should do--it refreshes your mind and spirit by effectively discombobulating habitual complacencies, and re-acquaints you with the world."
--Tony Kushner, Pulitzer Prize-winning author of Angels in America
Melanie Kaye/Kantrowitz exposes and challenges the common assumptions about whom and what Jews are, by presenting in their own voices, Jews of color from the Iberian Peninsula, Asia, Africa, and India. Drawing from her earlier work on Jews and whiteness, Kaye/Kantrowitz delves into the largely uncharted territory of Jews of color and argues that Jews are an increasingly multiracial people--a fact that, if acknowledged and embraced, could foster cross-race solidarity to help combat racism. This engaging and eye-opening book examines the historical and contemporary views on Jews and whiteness as well as the complexities of African/Jewish relations, the racial mix and disparate voices of the Jewish community, contemporary Jewish anti-racist and multicultural models, and the diasporic state of Jewish life in the United States.
