Rat-kangaroos have not coped well with the impact of European settlement in Australia. Of the 11 species present in 1788, two are extinct, two are either mostly or totally restricted to offshore islands and the range of all other species has been much reduced. Habitat alienation, altered fire regimes, grazing, predation by introduced carnivores, competition from rabbits and timber harvesting have variously taken their toll on these little-seen animals.

Semites: Race, Religion, Literature (Cultural Memory in the Present)  eBooks & eLearning

Semites: Race, Religion, Literature (Cultural Memory in the Present)
Stanford University Press | 2007-10-08 | ISBN: 0804756945 | 160 pages | PDF | 12 MB

This collection of essays explores the now mostly extinct notion of “Semites.” Invented in the nineteenth century and essential to the making of modern conceptions of religion and race, the strange unity of Jew and Arab under one term, “Semite” (the opposing term was “Aryan”), and the circumstances that brought about its disappearance constitute the subject of this volume. With a focus on the history of disciplines (including religious studies and Jewish studies), as well as on lingering political, theological, and cultural effects (secularism, anti-Semitism, Israel/Palestine), Semites: Race, Religion, and Literature turns to the literary imagination as the site of a fragile and tenuous alternative, the promise of something like a “Semitic perspective.”
