THE NEW JEW IN FILM: EXPLORING JEWISHNESS AND JUDAISM IN CONTEMPORARY CINEMA. Rutgers University Press, New Brunswick, 2012. 272 pp. with 23 ills. 23 x 15 cm. ISBN 9780813553405 In English.
Paperbound edition also available; see Worldwide 149145. Publisher's description: The New Jew in Film is grounded in the study of over three hundred films from Hollywood and beyond. Nathan Abrams explores these new and changing depictions of Jews, Jewishness, and Judaism, providing a wider, more representative picture of this transformation. Chapters explore masculinity, femininity, passivity, agency, and religion as well as a departure into new territory—including bathrooms and food. Abrams reveals how the representation of the Jew is used to convey confidence or anxieties about Jewish identity and history as well as questions of racial, sexual, and gender politics.
