The Jewish Role in American Life, Volume 5: An Annual Review Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The relationship between Jews and the United States is necessarily complex: Jews have been instrumental in shaping American culture and, of course, Jewish culture and religion have likewise been profoundly recast in the United States, especially in the period following World War II. A major focus of this work is to consider the Jewish role in American life as well as the American role in shaping Jewish life. This fifth volume of the Casden Institute's annual review is organized along five broad themes-politics, values, image, education and culture.

Book News Annotation:

In their introduction to five essays treating the themes of politics, values, image, education, and culture, the director and assistant director of the Casden Institute for the Study of the Jewish Role in American Life, U. of Southern California, note that Jews and America have influenced each other. The volume begins with a historian's look at the role of Jewish producers, stars, anti-Nazi messages, and anti-Semitism in the Hollywood film industry, and concludes with a sociologist's analysis of Jewish communities in Los Angeles.
