Reviews

With Renewed Survival, Nila Hofman contributes greatly to our growing understanding of the revival of Jewish identity in the late twentieth century. The voices of Croatia's intercultural Jews can now be heard as part of a pan-European chorus. -- Matti Bunzl, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign A rich account of how Croatian 'intercultural' Jews have claimed their Jewish heritage, ever mindful of the past and with clear reference to present day post-socialist upheavals, namely the adoption of a free market economy and the increase of 'exclusivist-nationalist political rhetoric' in the public sphere...A valuable contribution to the study of Eastern European and post-socialist Jewish life...Highly appropriate for historians, anthropologists, and those in the general public who are interested in knowing more about Jews in Croatia. * Shofar: An Interdisciplinary Journal Of Jewish Studies * Nila Hofman's insightful and timely anthropological study of the Jewish community of Zagreb makes an important contribution to our understanding of Jewish identity emerging in the post-communist era. Renewed Survival's engaging analysis thoughtfully reveals the complexities faced by this small but lively Croatian community in its efforts to construct Jewish meaning in the context of multiple internal and external tensions. -- Frida Kerner Furman, DePaul University
