Jacob H. Schiff: A Study in American Jewish Leadership
Naomi W. Cohen
Modern American Jews generally believe that until the period after World War II American Jewry was afraid to exert political power. "Jacob H. Schiff" . . . is a useful corrective to this mistaken idea . . . [a] well-written and well-researched book.
—New York Times Book Review
[An] absorbing new study . . . timely . . . a model of historical scholarship.
