Edited By Jaehn, Tomas
Against a backdrop of European unrest, immigration to America flourished in the nineteenth century for European Jews as for other groups. Two waves of immigration brought Jews to New Mexico, the first largely of German men in the 1840s and 1850s and the second of Eastern Europeans with the coming of the railroad to New Mexico in the 1880s. This book lights the drama that unfolded for these young Jewish merchants, tradesmen, in cases labourers, who were linked in their homeland through a complex web of intermarriage and who built quite successfully on their cultural and social relationships to become among New Mexico's most prominent, productive citizens. 100pp.

Taking its title from Karl Marx's description of religion as 'the general theory of this world...[and] its logic in a popular form', this volume of essays explores the hidden logic behind the popular construction of certain myths, beliefs about godlings and spirits, and cross-religious cults, viewing them as popular inventions attempting to make sense of human existence in the face of an overwhelming and often hostile environment. These religious manifestations of popular logic are fluid, ever-changing, and always innovative. They represent an alternative stream running parallel to, and often challenging, the more strictly structured beliefs and practices of the Indian religious establishments, whether Hindu, Islamic or Christian. The essays in this book are an attempt to rediscover some of the important aspects of this multi-faceted phenomenon of popular religion in the context of nineteenth-century Bengal, including tracing the impact of urbanisation, colonialism, and nationalism. 233pp.Tail of spine dented ,slight marking to boards,corners bumped.
