    Reckless Rites - The Legacy Of Jewish Violence Comment JB Campbell IN the spring of , as this book was slouching toward completion, Jeffrey Goldberg reported in the New Yorker about a series of disturbIing interviews he had recently conducted with Jewish settlers in the West Bank and Gaza. "The Palestinians are Amalek," he was told by. In a review of historian Elliot Horowitz's book Reckless rites: Purim and the legacy of Jewish violence, Hillel Halkin pointed out that the incidences of Jewish violence against non-Jews through the centuries are extraordinarily few in number and that the connection between them and Purim is tenuous.

    Reckless Rites Purim and the Legacy of Jewish Violence ELLIOTT HOROWITZ_ "Elliott Horowitz's learned, humane, and exciting book will rattle many platitudes and disturb many pieties. Purim will never be quite the same; and the complications that Horowitz introduces into the history of Jewish self-representation will be ferociously debated. Reckless Rites is an excellent read, and for a book on such a serious subject not devoid of humour, but its most important purpose, apart from informing us of an aspect of our past, is to throw a very large bucket of cold water over the misconceptions and the wilful misreading of history in which we all too easily indulge. Comfortable it.

    Summary and Analysis Book XII Summary. With the combined Trojan and Etruscan forces at Laurentum's gates, Turnus becomes fully aware that the Latins are in grave danger, so he renews the offer he made earlier in the citadel before Latinus and Drancës: He will fight Aeneas alone, and the winner will have Lavinia for his wife. Summary: "Reckless Rites reassesses the historical interpretation of Jewish violence - from the alleged massacre of thousands of Christians in seventh century Jerusalem to later medieval attacks on Christian symbols such as the crucifix, transgressions that were often committed in full knowledge that their likely consequence would be death."--Jacket.
