Bibliography on the Jewish Woman: A Comprehensive and Annotated Listing of Works Published 1900-1978.
Cantor, Aviva, Comp.
This bibliography presents over 600 references to books, articles, essays, and journals which explore the history, values, problems, literature, and current life of Jewish women. The bibliography is designed to be used by researchers and teachers in Jewish and women's studies, sociology, history, and literature; by directors, workers, and members of Jewish organizations; and by general feminist organizations. Most of the citations were published during the 1960s and 1970s, although many of the historical entries were written earlier in the 20th century. The entries are presented alphabetically by author in nine categories: anthologies, history, religious life and law, Jewish women in the United States and Canada, in Israel, in the Holocaust and Resistance, other countries/miscellaneous, children's books, and poetry. Some entries are briefly annotated; all give information on title, publisher, and publication date. Content includes histories of Jewish pioneer women in America, accounts of the Holocaust, critiques of Judaism, and essays on contemporary issues of feminism and lesbianism. A concluding section lists relevant Jewish publications, non-Jewish publications, feminist publications, and independent publishers. (AV)
