Gebundene Ausgabe, ID: 695083827

University of New Mexico Press, Albuquerque: 2010.. Softcover. Brand new book. These two autobiographical novels lay bare the life journey of a Mexican Jewish woman reconciling herself with a Sephardic background, her parent's dictates, and her husband's and family's expectations. Translated into English from the Spanish by Dick Gerdes. The only constant in her life is a need to find her own way, and the story of how she does so is intensely personal and yet universal in its humanness. This quest begins in Oshinica's childhood: at about age ten she's taken from the public school in Mexico City and placed in a Jewish one. There she begins to understand what it means to be Jewish. Though somewhat indifferent to Hebrew lessons, she warms to the teacher who shares experiences of the Holocaust and learns that being Jewish means being different. Oshinica's family thwarts her desire to enter the university and instead she's pushed into marriage at age seventeen. Children follow quickly, four in all, and into the 1960s Oshinica tries to be a dutiful wife and mother while continuing to be an obedient daughter. But the insular Jewish neighborhood that sheltered and defined her life is impinged upon as modernity transforms Mexico City. Seeing films like the Fellini movie 8 1/2 and experiencing a culturally changing capital city sets her on a quest for her own voice and space. Eventually she separates and divorces, supports herself as a commercial photographer, and enrolls in a creative writing course taught by Elena Poniatowska, one of Mexico‡s most prominent women authors. The short pieces begun in that course evolved into these two novels. The remarkable story they tell is how Oshinica‡s many, and often painful, journeys of discovery led to a personal peace. Rosa Niss‡n lives in Mexico City and is a photographer and filmmaker. Dick Gerdes lives in Albuquerque, New Mexico. "I've never met a person so natural and spontaneous. Rosa Niss‡n adapts herself to life the way a plant adapts itself to the soil or the sun." -- Elena Poniatowska, author of Tinisima, University of New Mexico Press, Albuquerque: 2010., Harvard University Press, Cambridge, Massachusetts and London England: 2014. Hardcover with dustjacket. Brand new book. America's criminal justice system is broken. The United States punishes at a higher per capita rate than any other country in the world. In the last twenty years, incarceration rates have risen 500 percent. Sentences are harsh, prisons are overcrowded, life inside is dangerous, and rehabilitation programs are ineffective. Police and prosecutors operate in the dark shadows of the legal processÑsometimes resigning themselves to the status quo, sometimes turning a profit from it. The courts define punishment as "time served," but that hardly begins to explain the suffering of prisoners. Looking not only to court records but to works of philosophy, history, and literature for illumination, Robert Ferguson, a distinguished law professor, diagnoses all parts of a now massive, out-of-control punishment regime. He reveals the veiled pleasure behind the impulse to punish (which confuses our thinking about the purpose of punishment), explains why over time all punishment regimes impose greater levels of punishment than originally intended, and traces a disturbing gap between our ability to quantify pain and the precision with which penalties are handed down. Ferguson turns the spotlight from the debate over legal issues to the real plight of prisoners, addressing not law professionals but the American people. Do we want our prisons to be this way? Or are we unaware, or confused, or indifferent, or misinformed about what is happening? Acknowledging the suffering of prisoners and understanding what punishers do when they punish are the first steps toward a better, more just system. Robert A. Ferguson is George Edward Woodberry Professor in Law, Literature, and Criticism at Columbia University. "If I had won the $400 million Powerball lottery last week I swear I would have ordered a copy for every member of Congress, every judge in America, every prosecutor, and every state prison official and lawmaker who controls the life of even one of the millions of inmates who exist today, many in inhumane and deplorable conditions, in our nation's prisons. The book is potentially transformative not just because it offers policy makers some solutions to the litany of problems they face as they seek ways to reform our broken penal systems. It is transcendent because it posits that America needs a fundamentally revised understanding of the concept of punishment itself if it is to save its soul in these prisonsÉ This book forces prison officials and lawmakers to look inward and see within themselves the dark, unremitting reasons why things have gotten as bad as they have inside our prisons and jails. It says squarely to these political and legal and community leaders (and by extension to their constituents): in seeking to bring retributive justice to bear, in seeking to diminish the prisoner, you have also diminished yourself in ways you are unable or unwilling to admit. Even today, with the whiff of reform in the air, this is a brave and honest message."ÑAndrew Cohen, The Atlantic "Inferno is a passionate, wide-ranging effort to understand and challengeÉour heavy reliance on imprisonment. It is an important book, especially for those (like me) who are inclined towards avoidance and tragic complacency. If Robert A. Ferguson is persuasive on nothing else, he is convincing in his claim that we should look our use of imprisonment full in the face. That means examining the psychological, philosophical, cultural, institutional, and political reasons for locking so many away. This examination can be uncomfortable indeed. Ferguson is relentless in demonstrating how our use of the language of fairness and rationality can obscure vindictiveness and arbitrarinessÉ Ferguson brings this unblinking honesty to other aspects of the punishment system. He insists that we uncover and acknowledge the pleasure people can take in retribution. He shows how the sterile influence of legal positivism has helped to strip legal language of its moral componentÉ His book is too balanced and thoughtful to be disregarded."ÑRobert F. Nagel, The Weekly Standard "The book's descent into the frightening depths of criminal punishment leaves us nearly despondentÉ Ferguson's major re-envisioning of what incarceration offers us is a chance to turn our present incarcerative hell into a purgative place where hope of redemption can still surviveÉ Ferguson's book opens our eyes in the darkness and points to a possible exit. It should be required reading for judges, legislators, politicians, prison authorities and all of us who are democratically responsible for the inferno that together we have created."ÑFrancis R. Herrmann, America "This is less a public-policy book than a deeper exploration of what it means to punishÉ So much of Ferguson's project is an attempt to bring readers closer to understanding what it's like to fall into the maw of the justice systemÑthat's why he has no compunction about bringing in literature (Kafka, Dostoyevsky, and other authors) when nonfiction is too dry or imprecise to do the job. When trying to understand the unimaginable torment of sitting alone in a coffin-like cell for years, or of watching helplessly as one's execution date creeps closer and closer, sometimes fictions comes closer to capturing these horrors better than any ACLU report ever could. Inferno is a wide-ranging effort that covers many subjects. A section on Cesare Beccaria, an 18th-century thinker and reformer on justice issues, is fascinatingÉ Ferguson's descriptions of the hell that is solitary confinement (and the arbitrary, capricious manner in which the incarcerated are subjected to it) are powerfulÉ Inferno still stands out as an interesting, intellectually innovative take on a hellish problem."ÑJesse Singal, The Boston Globe "Probing and thought-provokingÉ The book moves deftly among philosophy, law, and criminology, but its heart and soul is literatureÉ [An] excellent book."ÑJoshua Dubler, The Chronicle of Higher Education "The measurements of the American mania for incarceration are both staggering and, apparently, meaningless. With five per cent of the world's population, the U.S. has 25 per cent of its prisoners, 100,000 of them in mind- and soul-destroying solitaryÉ The heart of this superb book is a search for the deeper reasons, for the roots of the American impulse to punish, and punish severely. FergusonÉmaintains a tone that is remarkably, not accusatory or political, as he roams through Dante and Melville, Hobbes, Locke and Machiavelli looking for clues, for the punished are generally silent (or silenced)É The current, self-defeating situationÑwhere the $80-billion-a-year U.S. prison system does nothing so well as it trains and brutalizes future violent offendersÑhas been a generation in the making, and will probably take as long to wind down. But that process can't even begin until Americans start talking about why they do what they do."ÑBrian Bethune, Maclean's "Inferno: An Anatomy of American Punishment explores the unusual cruelty and vengefulness in our criminal justice system."ÑAndrew Sullivan, The Dish "An important wake-up call about an emerging crisis that threatens to become a human rights scandal of global proportions."ÑKirkus Reviews "Ferguson's descriptions of prisoners' suffering are compelling and thought provokingÉ A must for those working within the criminal justice system, the law, or religion."ÑFrances O. Sandiford, Library Journal "Ferguson succeeds in his aim of provoking thought in this broad assault on the American approach to punishing crimeÉ Ferguson also manages to make the reader identify with the incarcerated, no mean feat in a society where many are more likely to view themselves as a potential victim of crime than a potential inmateÉ The need for punishment is not in question, rather it is the severity, and Ferguson time and again forces the reader to look deeper at an issue to which most people are obliviousÉ For the most part he makes a heavy, complex, and contentious subject accessible to the layperson."ÑPublishers Weekly (starred review) "Robert Ferguson's Inferno: An Anatomy of American Punishment is a book of searing moral vision. He asks how it is that we have become a nation of punishers who can no longer see the human dignity of the punishedÑindeed, can no longer see the punished at all. Inferno penetrates the veil thrown over America's prison archipelago, insisting that we recognize the psychological, moral, and social consequences to the punished and punishers alike. How, he asks, have we allowed the growth of a punishment regime no less horrifying than that of the Soviet gulags? Ferguson is our Dante, acting as our guide through the travesty that is the American inferno. No one can come away from this book without a sense of their own complicity in the sin of our nation, yet with some hope that though the path forward is difficult, it is not yet completely closed."ÑPaul W. Kahn, Yale Law School "Inferno is a passionate, anguished cry against what is sometimes lamented but more than anything is taken for granted and ignored. He enlists his readers in a serious and sustained effort to reform America's prisons and jails. I know of no book just like Ferguson's."ÑLloyd Weinreb, Harvard Law School, Harvard University Press, Cambridge, Massachusetts and London England: 2014, Brandeis University Press, Waltham / University Press of New England, Hanover: 2007. Softcover. Brand new book. A fascinating analysis of the story of Eve, using modern poetry in conversation with biblical texts and rabbinic rewritings to reveal new layers of meaning. The biblical accounts of Eve's life are central to Western culture, occupying a privileged place in our literature and art, culture, and society. For both Judaism and Christianity, these stories involving Eve have for centuries been entangled with the religious and social construction of gender. The ambiguous biblical record of her life from the two versions of her creation, through her encounter with the forbidden fruit, to her expulsion from Eden, and followed by the tantalizing glimpses of her life in the real world has served through the ages as a mirror of commonly held views about women. For Jewish readers, Eve's role as metonym - signifying womanhood, or Jewish womanhood, as a whole - is of prime importance. By tracing the imagined character of Eve from ancient times to the present, Eternally Eve opens a window on the transmission and persistence of cultural and social values. Eternally Eve takes as its subject the many ways these stories can be read, interpreting the biblical narratives as well as their iteration by rabbinic midrashists and modern poets. Anne Lapidus Lerner argues that we must set aside, or at least rethink, a series of assumptions about Eve that have been dominant in Jewish thought for centuries and instead return to the original texts to rediscover meanings implicit in them. Using modern poetry about Eve as a touchstone for reinterpreting older texts, Lerner discovers that Genesis is often more open to contemporary values than are later rabbinic texts. Linking sacred texts to works of the classical and modern imagination, Lerner restores to her sources meanings suppressed or neglected over many years and demonstrates their power to speak today. "Throughout time Eve as an icon of female sexuality has served as a touchstone for the erotic in women's lives. Readers of Eternally Eve will find their conception of male/female relationships transformed."ÑDr. Ruth Westheimer "Deeply rooted in biblical, rabbinic, and literary scholarship, Lerner's accessible and engrossing study explores representations of Eve's enduring creativity and power across the millennia of Jewish tradition and imagination."ÑJudith R. Baskin, Knight Professor of Humanities, University of Oregon "In this wide-ranging work, Lapidus Lerner shows how the typical depiction of Eve as a subservient, and as an evil temptress is wrong. Through a close reading of biblical and rabbinic texts, as well as modern Hebrew, Yiddish, and English poems, she shows a much more complex and interesting Eve. Her method, which allows each text to speak for itself, and to gain more depth through juxtaposition to other texts, yields significant insights into a wide variety of compositions, and offers an important addition to the growing body of Jewish scholarly feminist literature."ÑMarc Z. Brettler, Dora Golding Professor of Biblical Studies, Chair of Near Eastern and Judaic Studies, Brandeis University The Table of Contents of this book is as follows: Preface ¥ A Note on Translation, Texts, and Transliteration ¥ The Significance of Eve ¥ The Creation of Woman ¥ Life in the Garden of Eden ¥ Eve Beyond the Garden ¥ Eve Framed: Invisibility and Visibility ¥ Notes ¥ Works Cited ¥ Index of Sources ¥ Subject Index. Anne Lapidus Lerner is Assistant Professor of Jewish Literature and Director of the Program in Jewish Women's Studies at Jewish Theological Seminary, New York City. She is a co-editor of Gender and Text: Feminist Perspectives on Modern Hebrew and Yiddish Literatures (1992)., Brandeis University Press, Waltham / University Press of New England, Hanover: 2007, University of Illinois Press, Urbana and Chicago: 2015. Softcover. Brand new book. The inequalities surrounding the great equalizer The post-Civil War Industrial Age brought fundamental changes to the economy and its workers, forcing Americans to reassess the meaning of life and death. This illuminating study of working-class rituals of dying and the politics of death explores how Americans struggled to understand the broader forces transforming their worlds. Michael K. Rosenow investigates working people's beliefs and practices in this important era by homing in on three overarching questions: How did workers, their families, and their communities experience death? Did various identities of class, race, gender, and religion coalesce to form distinct cultures of death for working people? And how did people's attitudes toward death reflect notions of who mattered in U.S. society? Drawing from an eclectic array of sources ranging from Andrew Carnegie to grave markers in Chicago's potter's field, Rosenow portrays the complex political, social, and cultural relationships that fueled the industrial ascent of the United States. Michael K. Rosenow is an assistant professor at the University of Central Arkansas. "Through portraits of industrial accidents, political funerals, and burial rituals, this compelling reinterpretation of working-class culture and the making of labor solidarity highlights how bodies in their gendered, class, and ethnic valences matter--in death as well as life. Michael Rosenow captures the hazards of work in coal and steel in a world where cults of manliness and productivity proved deadly, but resistance and accommodation took multiple forms."--Eileen Boris, Hull Professor of Feminist Studies, University of California, Santa Barbara "Engaging, thoughtful, and very readable . . . It adds to our knowledge of how Americans responded to the changes brought by industrialization in the second half of the nineteenth century."--Robert V. Wells, author of Life Flows On in Endless Song: Folk Songs and American History "Rosenow usefully extends a now-rich literature on American memorial practices to the northern industrial working classes from the Civil War to World War I. . . . This pioneering study deserves wide attention."--Leon Fink, author of Sweatshops at Sea: Merchant Seamen in the World's First Globalized Industry, from 1812 to the Present, University of Illinois Press, Urbana and Chicago: 2015, Hay House, 2007.
