Product Details

Read an Excerpt

The field of American Jewish history has grown dramatically since Marcus began his work more than sixty years ago. Over the past two or three decades, hundreds of Jewish organizations, historical societies, and synagogues have established local archives in which historical documents are preserved and made available for research. Today, thousands of monographs, articles, and books have transformed what was once a barren field of study into a burgeoning academic enterprise. . .. Yet even as the body of American Jewish historiography increases, tomorrow's students will have no alternative but to make Jacob Marcus a critical point of reference from which the field's efflorescence will be gauged. In this way, Marcus's career and scholarly contributions will continue to impact upon the dynamics of American Jewish history for years to come.--from the Introduction
