American Jewish History: A Primary Source Reader
Edited by Gary Phillip Zola and Marc Dollinger
"Setting the gold standard for the field, Zola and Dollinger's source reader is indispensable for those teaching modern Jewish history."
Pamela S. Nadell, American University
[This] stunning new collection of documents . . . conveys the remarkable breadth and extraordinary diversity of the American Jewish experience across 350 years. The editors show keen sensitivity to the maturation of American Jewish historiography. Their selections capture the voices of America's Jews and illuminate their lives through the prisms of business and labor, immigration and adaptation, religion and Zionism, family life and philanthropy, politics and antisemitism. Setting the gold standard for the field, Zola and Dollinger's source reader is indispensable for those teaching modern Jewish history.
—Pamela S. Nadell, Director, Jewish Studies at American University
American Jewish History: A Primary Source Reader . . . offers a panoramic sweep of religion, politics, popular culture, and more, and it will, I predict, become the key compendium of primary documents for the study of the American Jewish past.
—Hasia R. Diner, American Jewish History, New York University
