This JPS Guide chronicles the extraordinary history of American Jewry. Finkelstein tells the dramatic 350-year story of the people and events that shaped the lives of today’s American Jews. Divided into six time periods, American Jewish History describes Jewish life from the time of the early settlers, to the period of massive immigration that flooded the cities, to the incredible growth of Jews in positions of influence in business, politics, and the arts. This is a story of a people who affected not only the lives of Jews in the U.S. today, but also the course of American history itself. There are over 70 black and white photographs, maps, and charts and more than 120 feature boxes and biographies throughout, as well as timelines, notes, a bibliography, and index. Finkelstein has made the saga of American Jewry much more than a compilation of historical facts. This is wonderfully stimulating journey—a worthwhile adventure for readers of all ages.

THIS IS A REVIEW OF THE KEN BRUEN MYSTERY, "PURGATORY" NOT "AMERICAN JEWISH HISTORY"- WHICH I HAVE PURCHASED BUT NOT YET READ. PLEASE DISREGARD THE REVIEW AS IS WAS POSTED IN ERROR.

Both Judaic studies collections and general-interest holdings seeking an accessible, warm history of Jewish events would do well with the colorful, concise AMERICAN JEWISH HISTORY, which follows over three hundred years of Jewish history from the time of the earliest Jewish settlers on American shores to the presence of Jewish people in modern politics, business and arts environments. Chapters focus on specific time periods, come illustrated with black and white photos, maps and over a hundred feature boxes and biographies, and provide important keys to understanding Jewish society and culture.
