Abstract

In turn-of-the-century Vienna, Karl Kraus created a bold new style of media criticism, penning incisive satires that provoked both admiration and outrage. Kraus's spectacularly hostile critiques often focused on his fellow Jewish journalists, which led to a reputation as the quintessential self-hating Jew. 'The Anti-Journalist' overturns this view with unprecedented force and sophistication, showing precisely how Kraus's most controversial criticisms form the center of a radical and productive model of German-Jewish self-fashioning. Paul Reitter's study of Kraus's writings situates them in the context of fin-de-sicle German-Jewish intellectual society. He argues that rather than stemming from anti-Semitism, Kraus's attacks constituted a constructive critique of mainstream German-Jewish strategies for assimilation. Marshalling three of the most daring German-Jewish authors& Kafka, Scholem, and Benjamin& Reitter explains their admiration for Kraus's project and demonstrates his influence on their own notions of cultural authenticity. 'The Anti-Journalist' is at once a new interpretation of a fascinating figure and a heady exploration of an important stage in the history of German-Jewish thinking about identity.

This book presents for the first time the complete text of the earliest known Ladino-language memoir, transliterated from the original script, translated into English, and introduced and explicated by the editors. The memoirist, Sa'adi Besalel a-Levi (1820-1903), wrote about Ottoman Jews' daily life at a time when the finely wrought fabric of Ottoman society was just beginning to unravel. His vivid portrayal of life in Salonica, a major port in the Ottoman Levant with a majority Jewish population, thus provides a unique window into a way of life before it disappeared as a result of profo
