Item Description...
A nuanced analysis of Israel's use of gender to respond to national crisis. The role of power in the construction of gender and space. Uses the latest social-science and anthropological methods.

Publishers Description
In this innovative and important work Christl M. Maier argues that the way Israelites in the exilic and post-exilic periods spoke of Jerusalem as gendered space??????a "female" city??????helps us trace reactions to the crisis of exile and the emergence of a new national-religious identity. Taking up the Zion tradition in Isaiah of Jerusalem, Jeremiah, Hosea, Ezekiel, and Lamentations, Maier explores motifs of Jerusalem as mother, daughter, bride, whore, and injured victim. Her interpretation of gendered metaphors also helps us understand contemporary political and religious constructions of gender and political power.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
For anyone who enjoys history and an informed view of the diverse roles of women within the context of the Abrahamic religions  Dec 8, 2008
Women played major roles in ancient Israel. "Daughter Zion, Mother Zion: Gender, Space, and the Sacred in Ancient Israel" is a look at Ancient Israel and its vitally important role in history, as a major holy city for Christianity, Judaism, and Islam. May concepts of history are presented and discussed in a scholarly manner offering much food for thought on the roles of women, the land they live on, and what is considered holy throughout the history of Jerusalem and Israel. "Daughter Zion, Mother Zion" is very much worth a read for anyone who enjoys history and an informed view of the diverse roles of women within the context of the Abrahamic religions.
