A vivid commentary on Jewish survival and Jewish speech communities that will be enjoyed by the general reader, and is essential reading for students and researchers interested in the study of Middle Eastern languages, Jewish studies, and sociolinguistics.
This book is an in-depth examination of education and media under occupation.
The contributors to this volume engage dialogue to explore these domains and
their roles and functioning under occupation while keeping an eye toward
resolution, using the on-going conflict between Palestine and Israel as the
focus. The uniqueness of this collection is not limited to the willingness of its
authors to investigate topics that have often been left out of the mainstream,
but that they actually enter into dialogue with one another. Education and media
are exemplified as domains that can either maintain the status quo of
oppression when used by policymakers and governments to do so or can be
utilized as mechanisms for change and peacemaking. These contradictory roles
are highlighted throughout this book by multiple voices.
