"The first book to use Ladino proverbs as the basis of fine art. The book combines 45 interpretive etchings with literary and scholarly essays by one of Spain's most prominent novelists and an internationally respected Sephardic and Biblical scholar. The etchings are witty, irreverent, whimsical, and profound, and offer a window into the Sephardic culture and experience. Mr. Shanker's style matches perfectly the proverbs: naively simple and deeply philosophical. Marc Shanker's haunted art conjures the spirits of Spain and Salonica, ... and in doing so keeps the old alive, as the proverb has it, for the good of the young ... (and) for the pleasure of all, Peter Cole. TOS has the aura of a small ark about it, Maria Rosa Menocal. Limited Edition: 1000 copies."--PublisherMarc Shanker (Author, Illustrator), Antonio Muñoz Molina (Introduction), T.A. Perry (Introduction, Translator)Donated by Marc Shanker.

This innovative volume offers fresh perspectives and directions on the intersection of Hispanic and Jewish studies. It shows how 'Jewishness' has played a crucial role in Spanish political, social, and cultural developments in the modern era, exploring the effects of the multiple material and symbolic absences of Jews and Judaism from modern Spanish society. The book considers the haunting presence that this absence has entailed. Contributors analyze the different and contradictory ways in which Spain as a nation has tried to come to terms with its Jewish memory and with Jews from the nineteenth century to the present: José Amador de los Ríos’ efforts to incorporate 'Jewishness' into the canon of Spanish national literature and history; the emergence in the mid-nineteenth century of the figure of the Jewish conspirator who seeks to foment revolutionary unrest in novels from Spain, Italy and France; the development of philosephardism and its interconnections with anti-Semitism, Spanish fascism and colonial ambitions at the turn of the twentieth century; the instrumentalization of the Spanish Jewish past during the Second Republic; the role of philosemitism in the development of Catalan nationalism; and the relationship between the memory of Sepharad and Holocaust commemoration in contemporary Spain. This book is based on a special issue of the Journal of Spanish Cultural Studies.

A mediados del siglo XII, el Mediterráneo constituía un mundo en tensión permanente: en Oriente, Saladino se preparaba para asaltar Jerusalén, y en Occidente los invasores almohades imponían su dominio en Al-Andalus. A mediados del siglo XII, el Mediterráneo constituía un mundo en tensión permanente: en Oriente, Saladino se preparaba para asaltar Jerusalén, y en Occidente los invasores almohades imponían su dominio en Al-Andalus. Justamente en esas tierras, en la ciudad de Córdoba, nació en el seno de una familia judía Moisés ben Maimón, médico y filósofo, conocido también como Maimónides. Fueron tiempos difíciles que obligaron a su padre, un respetado rabino, a emprender con su familia la ruta del exilio tras verse forzado a apostatar de su fe. Mientras seguimos a Moisés a través de los zocos y las escuelas de medicina, de las sinagogas y de los palacios, de los puertos y las ciudades de Al-Andalus, Marruecos, Tierra Santa y Egipto, se nos revela un cosmos de belleza, lucha y contrastes, donde sus habitantes (el talmudista, el médico árabe, los pacientes de Moisés, el propio Saladino y sobre todo Susana, la bella mujer de ojos verdes...), víctimas de los tiempos convulsos que les ha tocado vivir, anhelan conocer la sabiduría, encontrar el amor y descubrir el sentido último de la existencia.
