Book News Annotation:

Alan Mintz (Hebrew literature, Jewish Theological Seminary, New York) introduces this counter-history to the better-known story of immigrant Jewish-American authors. Weingrad (Judaic studies, Portland State U., Oregon) focuses on the minority of writers who expressed an ambivalent Jewish-American identity through poetry and prose in Hebrew including Shimon Ginzburg, Benjamin Nahum Silkiner, Ephraim Lisitzky, and Shimon Halkin. These Hebraist authors' themes included modern life in urban, rural, small-town, and Christian America; affinity with American Indians; and the influence of visionary Mordecai Manual Noah.
