To find out more about any of these works, just click the titles in the catalogue on the left. The first five comprise "The Argaman Quintet", five novels that recount key elements of European Jewish history, from the end of the era of the stetl to the founding of the State of Israel, by way of the Jewish Resistance Movement in Poland in World War Two and the struggles of the "Refuseniks" in the Soviet Union - tales of Jews as heroes, not as victims. The catalogue continues with four novelistic biographies (King David, Muhammad, Roderigo Lopes and Richard Wagner); after which come contemporary novels, short stories, poetry, essays in literature and philosophy, translations, travel writings, plays, memoir and songs.
Commencing in October 2013, The Argaman Press has begun the process of publishing all these works - a total of 30 books. For publication updates, follow David Prashker at Davidprashker.com
