Synopses & Reviews

Please note that used books may not include additional media (study guides, CDs, DVDs, solutions manuals, etc.) as described in the publisher comments.

Synopsis:

Interweaving introspection with political commentary, biography with history, "The Promised Land", first published in 1912, brings to life the transformation of an East European Jewish immigrant into an American citizen. The author recounts the "process of uprooting, transportation, replanting, acclimatization, and development that took place in my own soul", and describes the impact of a new culture and new standards of behavior on her family. A feeling of divisions — between Russia and America, Jews and Gentiles, Yiddish and English — ever-present in her narrative, is balanced by insights, amusing and serious, into ways to grapple with them. In telling her story, the author illuminates the lives of hundreds of thousands.
