5-0 out of 5 stars Actually the Dybbuk Press print edition has reviews
This is a fascinating history of Rashi written in 1906. Recently Elie Wiesel used this particular book for his study of Rashi in Rashi because it still holds up as an achievement in historical studies. Rashi was a rabbi who was at the forefront of the movement from the goanim to the rabbinate and his commentaries are still intgegral to Jewish learning. Sadly, much of the biographies written about Rashi are in the Artscroll tradition of hagiography which brooks no criticisms of their figures. They even recalled books that said that a certain rabbi read The New York Times because they cater to the highly ignorant and very sheltered branches of Judaism (and their siddur's version of Song of Songs is a howler of nonsense that has NOTHING to do with the text and everything to do with the "symbolic" meaning - and even then there's a rather fascinating line about doing something with my golden calves that sounds like Japanese Porn)

This book is a great contribution to the scholarly approach to Rashi, an approach that has sadly been neglected by both the lack of interest among the general population and the move to rightwing lunacy among Orthodox Jews. It talks about his life, the myths around his life and the world in which he lived. It also speaks of his work including midrash, gemara commentary, responsa (a lot about the Crusades and their effect on Judaism in the middle ages) and poetry. It then speaks of his impact with a crash course in history from a Jewish perspective up until the Haskalah.

Product Description
As of old many cities in Greece asserted that they were the birthplace of Homer, the national poet, so a number of cities disputed for the honor of being the birthplace of Rashi, or of having been his residence, or the scene of his death. Worms claimed him as one of its rabbis, Lunel, thanks to a confusion of names, has passed as his birthplace, and Prague as the city of his death. ... Read more

1-0 out of 5 stars When something old is discardable

I am sorry to say that this book on Rashi, by the eminent Maurice Liber is simply to dated, both in its written style, and with a lack of information on Rashi's Milieu.

5-0 out of 5 stars Buy the Dybbuk Press Version
Ok I have published Rashi and Merely Mary Ann at the same time, because I'll be publishing Michael Boatman's horror anthology and The Big Bow Mystery later this year and I want to devote as much time as possible to promotion of those books.

In writing a review, I know that I have essentially two audience members - those who know Rashi quite well and those that have never heard of Rashi before.

For those of you unfamiliar with Rashi, he was an 11th century rabbi who wrote responsa, Torah commentary, Talmud commentary and died in 1205. Maurice Liber has many chapters devoted to his Torah commentary and discussion thereof. If you are Jewish, this can give you a taste of Rashi before studying further. If you are not Jewish, this makes for a fascinating study in medieval philosophy as well as the tensions between Christian and Jewish communities. Maurice Liber notes many instances where Rashi purposefully comments on a psalm or a passage in a way that illegitimizes the Xian viewpoint. In other places, he's merely commenting as a commentator without the tensions.

If you are familiar with Rashi, this is still a fascinating book. Written in 1905 with a completely different set of biases (Liber praises Rashi for inspiring Mendelssohn for example), this book at times feels like the antithesis of those Artscroll biographies that make you suspect that the great sages never went to the bathroom much less read the secular newspapers of their days. Liber places Rashi in a particular time and place before Christian Jewish relations went to hell (the Crusades and the Black Death were either not happening or much less vicious in Rashi's time) and he also discusses the ways that later commentators would disagree with Rashi. Ibn Ezra was particularly vicious towards the Rashi commentaries. Rather than lower Rashi in one's estimation, Liber manages to make Rashi into a more respectable figure as he's human and some of his commentaries are not without problems for the modern reader. Liber also publishes some of Rashi's selichot which are fascinating in their own right.

So if you are at all interested in medeival history or Rashi as a person in a particular time, please buy this book. ... Read more

Product Description
The Internet is radically changing the ways in which enterprises interact with each other in value networks. However, today's existing software technology doesn't adequately address the need to create highly complex interactions among multiple business partners. The arrival of web services promises to bring changes in current Internet technology.

Web services are self-contained, self-describing, modular applications that can be published, located and invoked across the web. They perform functions that can be anything from simple requests to complicated business processes. Using web services, an information system will be able to communicate much more easily with a partner's information system than in the past. Web services provide the technical foundation that companies need, to adopt the new operating style required by a dynamic business world: 'plug-and-play e-business'.By plug-and-play', we mean that companies can integrate themselves seamlessly into each other's businesses with little or no software efforts and without the protracted business cycles of the past in order to meet customers demands.

But what technology should be used for implementing web services? The editors believe objects, component-based development and software re-use are key parts of the software engineering approach onto which web services are to be built.

This liber amicorum is written in honour of Prof.M. Verhelst who has many years of experience in software engineering. ... Read more

3-0 out of 5 stars Mixed bag
I had to give this book a 3.It is worth reading and is informative however I'd not classify it as a biography but a critique.I was clearly written for the secular reader or to perhaps place a vastly counter perspective of Rashi and his writing to the religious.As a not so religious person but well versed in all the major religions from their specificity to base history, in this specific respect, I must question the position of Maurice Liber directly due to his positioning of Rashi and enlightening of the more secular Jewish thinkers and activists; Moses Mendelssohn and Abraham Geiger.

For those who are not well versed in the religious vs. non/anti religious from a Jewish perspective, very similar to the movements sparked by the Renaissance, Reformation and the Counter Reformation: Humanist/Socialist, Christians (Protestants) and Catholics that are very active today within numerous aspects of society today.

The names Liber affords acknowledgment must be questioned as the place the work into a polemic position because of their direct association to, and with, the Communist-Socialist movements: Bund and Reform Judaism.For those that do not know, Reform Judaism was the attempt by Abraham Geiger and a man named Lillianthal under the theories of Mendelssohn to Socialize Judaism by combining the teachings and culture of the Jew with that of the Christian, Pagan and the Humanist/Socialist/Communist theology.The result has been disastrous to Jewry and Judaism.Very similar to the attacks and splitting of Christianity into numerous sects all working against each other instead of with each other.I'd strongly recommend the book "To Eliminate the Opiate" by Dr. Rabbi Marvin Antelman.

Well written but suspect in my opinion...Happy Reading... ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Amusing novel-world
This was a witty piece of book. Does it contain profound truths which will forever alter the way you perceive the meta-world, the world of the dead or the novel-world? Didn't seem to. A lot of visual art and ditties pasted together by a very stoned neo-hippie with a blazing sense of humor and evocative pathos. Maurice G Dantec would have us believe that this huge philosophical swamp is the secret key to enlightenment; but after having read, and enjoyed, all of his books, I eventually came to the sad conclusion that he seems to have his head up his @$$. For a contemporary French writer it is a true revolutionary act and it remains an interesting Historical document for those who can read it - immature as the contents may well be.
If you liked this, be sure to check out the open source uchrony "DUSK", which expands upon the topics covered with more intelligence and depth.
