In 1948, British troops withdrew from the Palestinian lands, ending over 30 years of the British Mandate of Palestine. Taking a fresh look at the years of the British mandate; its politics, economics, and culture, this volume will be valuable not only to scholars of the British mandate, but also more broadly to those interested in imperial history and the history of the West's involvement in the Middle East.

In The Censor, the Editor, and the Text, Amnon Raz-Krakotzkin examines the impact of Catholic censorship on the publication and dissemination of Hebrew literature in the early modern period. Hebrew literature made the transition to print in Italian print houses, most of which were owned by Christians. These became lively meeting places for Christian scholars, rabbis, and the many converts from Judaism who were employed as editors and censors. Raz-Krakotzkin examines the principles and practices of ecclesiastical censorship that were established in the second half of the sixteenth century as a part of this process. The book examines the development of censorship as part of the institutionalization of new measures of control over literature in this period, suggesting that we view surveillance of Hebrew literature not only as a measure directed against the Jews but also as a part of the rise of Hebraist discourse and therefore as a means of integrating Jewish literature into the Christian canon. On another level, The Censor, the Editor, and the Text explores the implications of censorship in relation to other agents that participated in the preparation of texts for publishing—authors, publishers, editors, and readers. The censorship imposed upon the Jews had a definite impact on Hebrew literature, but it hardly denied its reading, in fact confirming the right of the Jews to possess and use most of their literature. By bringing together two apparently unrelated issues—the role of censorship in the creation of print culture and the place of Jewish culture in the context of Christian society—Raz-Krakotzkin advances a new outlook on both, allowing each to be examined through the conceptual framework usually reserved for the other.

Jewish copyright law is a rich body of copyright doctrine and jurisprudence that developed in parallel with Anglo-American and Continental European copyright laws and the printers' privileges that preceded them. Jewish copyright law traces its origins to a dispute adjudicated in 1550, over 150 years before modern copyright law is typically said to have emerged with the Statute of Anne of 1709. It continues to be applied today, notably in a rabbinic ruling outlawing pirated software, issued at Microsoft's request. In 'From Maimonides to Microsoft', Professors Netanel and Nimmer trace the development of Jewish copyright law by relaying the stories of five dramatic disputes, running from the sixteenth century to the present. They describe each dispute in its historical context and examine the rabbinic rulings that sought to resolve it. Remarkably, these disputes address some of the same issues that animate copyright jurisprudence today: Is copyright a property right or a limited regulatory prerogative? What is copyright's rationale? What is its scope? How can copyright be enforced against an infringer who is beyond the applicable legal authority's reach?

In den Umwälzungen des 15.-16. Jh. stellte sich für das Judentum und die katholische Kirche die Frage nach der Vereinbarkeit von Tradition und neuer Weltanschauung. Während die katholische Kirche die vertrauten Denkformen zur Aufrechterhaltung ihrer Autorität verteidigte, wurde der Kontrast zwischen der alten und der neuen Welt bei einigen Vertretern der jüdischen Kultur zu einer grundlegenden Moralfrage. Beide fanden in dem Symbol des salomonischen Tempels ein ideales Darstellungsmodell ihrer kulturellen und politischen Vorstellungen. Ziel dieser Arbeit ist es, Parallelen aufzuzeigen und das Umfeld zu rekonstruieren, in dem die Shilte ha-gibborim des Abraham ben David Portaleone entstanden sind.
