Jewish Book Council is just beginning to pack up our table at the 47th Annual Conference of the Association for Jewish Studies in Boston, where we’ve spent the past three days showcasing nearly 150 titles by AJS members published in the past year alone, and discovered some interesting titles and book covers while we’re here! One in particular caught my eye:
University of San Diego professor of theology and religious studies Aaron S. Gross investigates the large-scale scandals at Agriprocessors, one of the world’s largest kosher slaughterhouses located in Postville, Iowa, in The Question of the Animal and Religion: Theoretical Stakes, Practical Implications. Kudos to Columbia University Press for enhancing a book of serious scholarship with such a creative design for the cover!
- Sue Fishkoff: Getting Close to Your Food Is Harder When Meat Is Involved
- Nora Rubel: Not Kosher
- Beth Warren: Kosher Style
