The History of the Ten Lost Tribes : Anglo-Israelism Examined, Baron, David
1 Baron, David The History of the Ten Lost Tribes : Anglo-Israelism Examined
London Morgan & Scott 1915 First Edition Hardcover Very Good 
85 pp plus [3] of publisher cataloge. Red cloth, gilt lettering on the spine; back cover stamped in blind. Some surface spotting on the cover, the front hing is starting to break and there general tone throughout. David Baron (1855–1926) was a Jewish convert to Christianity. This work is intended primarily as a thorough examination and debunking of Anglo-Israelism, the theory that Anglo-Saxons are somehow the actual historical Israel to the exclusion of modern day Jews. The work also tackles to a lesser degree the more common theory of "Replacement Theology" or "Supersessionism" and gives it similar treatment. The author, David Baron, was a Hebrew-Christian, long before that movement, or the often intertwined Messianic Judaism movement, became more widely popularized circa the 1960's.

Doubleday 1997 0385475187 / 9780385475181 First Edition Hardcover Near Fine in Near Fine dust jacket 
Near fine. Pages; xvi, 1-430. Illustrated. "Feminism, like democracy, is not an easy sell in many parts of the world, especially in traditional societies with autocratic regimes. However, feminism today enjoys an advantage in that it can adapt to local cultural forms and practices; hence the author's concept of Islamic feminism. Here she sets out to answer basic yet sometimes complex questions about Middle Eastern women: their predicament, what feminism means to them, whether its ideas are helpful, and the alternatives in traditional societies. The last chapter is on Muslim women in the United States. Although the author states in conclusion that Islamic feminism seems to her to be alive and well in the countries she visited, gender equality is still a long way off. Highly recommended for all libraries and essential for women's studies collections." Libary Journal review. ; 9.30 X 6.30 X 1.50 inches; 448 pages

The result is a lively, illuminating, and discussion-provoking book.
