The book Orientalism and the Jews, Edited by Ivan Davidson Kalmar and Derek Penslar is published by Brandeis University Press. Orientalism and the Jews, Kalmar, Penslar The Chicago Distribution Center is temporarily closed. Bringing together essays by an array of international scholars in a wide range of disciplines, “Orientalism and the Jews” demonstrates that, since the Middle Ages, Jews have been seen in the Western world as both occidental and oriental.

Jews formed the model for medieval depictions of Muslim warriors. In spite of growing globalization there remains in the world a split between the West and the rest. Kalmar and Penslar argue that "orientalism" is based on the Christian West's attempts to understand its relations with both its monotheistic Others - Muslims and Jews.

At the turn of the 21st century, in spite of growing globalization there remains in the world a split between the West and the rest. The manner in which this split has been imagined and represented in Western civilization has been the subject of intense cross-disciplinary scrutiny, much of it under.

Orientalism was published nearly forty years ago, at the time of the Camp David Accords between Israel and Egypt and the Lebanese civil war, just before the Islamic Revolution in Iran, and four years before Ariel Sharon’s invasion of Lebanon and the massacres in the Palestinian refugee camps of Sabra and Shatila.

While studies of orientalism and the Jews on a more-or-less Saidian pattern – whether looking at Zionism as orientalism or at the history of antisemitism as colonialism – can be of crucial importance to our understanding of specific issues such as were investigated by the authors mentioned above, the full depth and breadth of the connection between orientalism and the Jews reaches well beyond the limits.
