    Distributed by the University of Nebraska Press for Richard Altschuler & Associates, Inc./ Gordian Knot Books This book provides a convenient, single source for better understanding Jewish diversity in America, Israel, and other societies—and the implications of recent changes in the identities, lifestyles, and beliefs of Jews for their personal and social lives in the twenty-first century. The authoritative studies by modern scholars presented in this volume dispel stereotypes about Jewish men and women by revealing the wide range of cognitive, affective, and behavioral differences among Jews with respect to sex and sexuality; marriage, intermarriage, and divorce; childbirth and adoption; religious practices; the Torah and other sacred texts; Jewish and African-American relations; Zionism, Israel, and Palestine; Jewish and Gentile relations; body image and eating behaviors; mental and physical illness; death, burial, and the afterlife. The rich collection of facts, perspectives, and insights contained in this anthology—written by leading thinkers in sociology, religious studies, psychology, anthropology, and psychiatry—makes it a vital resource not only for Jews and students of Judaism, but for all individuals concerned about issues involving identity, assimilation, acculturation, conflict, and discrimination among members of minority groups in multicultural societies.

    Social movements have shown themselves to be one of the most dramatic and effective forms of political action. America, founded as the result of a challenge to one kind of political order, has been, in part, recreated as a result of movements of collective protest. Social movements continue to arise in America, Europe, Asia, and Africa. In the present age, when such social movements abound, it is crucial to investigate the theoretical similarities and underpinnings of older and current collective protests. With chapters on AIDS, the Iranian revolution, the New Left, environmentalism, and many other subjects, as well as essays delineating classical and contemporary theories, Social Movements provides a well-rounded and provocative perspective on this most compelling form of political expression.
