How to behave in the diaspora has been a central problem for Jews over the ages. They have debated whether to assimilate by adopting local customs or whether to remain a God-centered people loyal to their temporal rulers but maintaining the peculiar customs that separated them from their host nations. The question not only of survival, but of the basis for survival, is also a central problem in the Joseph stories of the Book of Genesis. The work shows its readers the grand alternatives of Judaism, instilled in two larger-than-life figures, so its readers can reassess for themselves the road Judaism did not take, and understand why Joseph though admirable in many respects, is left out of the rest of the Bible. The question is answered through the stories about how Joseph, the son of Jacob, saved his people/family from famine by becoming a high-ranking administrator to Pharaoh. By analyzing his behavior to the people over whom he exercises power, Joseph lords it over his brothers, grieves his father, takes lands from Egyptian farmers, and engages in forced deportation. Wildavsky explains why Joseph-the-assimilator is replaced in the Book of Exodus by Moses-the-lawgiver. The book ends by demonstrating that Joseph and Moses are, and are undoubtedly meant to be exact opposites. As in his earlier book on The Nursing Father: Moses as a Political Leader, Wildavsky combines analysis of political and administrative leadership with both traditional and modern study of texts: thematic linkages via plot, grammar, dreams, poetry, and religious doctrine. Thus the chapter on "Joseph the Administrator" is preceded by a chapter on Joseph as The Dream Lord" and followed by an analysis and explanation of why Jacob's obscure blessings to his sons are more like curses. Always the emphasis is on the reciprocal influence of religion and politics, on rival answers to questions about how Hebrews should relate to each other and to outsiders. New, in paperback, the book will be of interest to biblical scholars and readers as well as those concerned with the interaction of religion and political life.

This book attempts an interesting exercise in character analysis. It scrutinizes the speeches of Joseph in such a way as to expose the problematic nature of his claims to know God's intentions. While Judah is forced by Joseph's test to choose slavery for the sake of his father's survival, the ironic reversal of Judah's role from victimizer to victim is undercut by the rationale by which he had Joseph sold in order to save him. Unwittingly, Joseph mistakes this rationale as a divine principle that undergirds his suffering and he dreams of domination for the same purpose of survival. He is unaware of Judah's real predicament and this double blindness calls into doubt the coalescence of perspectives of Joseph and the narrator.

Designed for courses in Race and Ethnic Relations. This introductory text comes at a time when the boundaries of "being Canadian" are being pushed to the limit by deep diversities. The book begins with the assumption that race, ethnic, and Aboriginal interactions are relations in inequality. It continues by emphasizing how these largely inequitable group relationships are constructed, sustained, challenged, and modified by way of official policy and institutional practices. It concludes by focusing on the politics of race, ethnic, and Aboriginal relations as they contribute to or detract from the challenge of Canadian society-building.

At first reading the doctrine of uncleanness taught in the book of Numbers is similar to notions of physical and moral impurity in other religions. Considered more closely in a comparative framework, the biblical idea of impurity is unusual. To make a coherent anthropological interpretation a new reading has to be developed. The book of Numbers is composed according to an archaic literary form. Twelve alternating sections of law and narrative run in parallel across the whole book. The many repetitions and confusions which have been attributed to editorial carelessness now appear to be rhetorical devices to mark structural shifts and make the macro-compositional pattern. Read through this literary structure the message of the book is transformed. The priestly editors cannot be interpreted as an elitist group mainly concerned with the preservation of their cultic privileges. Their message is the joyful one that all the prophecies have been fulfilled and that all the sons of Jacob shall be heirs to the promise. Purity rules are generally used to justify social ranking and discrimination, but Numbers gives no scope for such a usage. The book announces a liberal theology with a benign doctrine of purification available for all who wanted it.
