Overview

Dixie Diaspora: An Anthology of Southern Jewish History

Regional Jewish history at its best.
 
This book is an anthology of essays designed to introduce readers to key issues in this growing field of scholarship and to encourage further study. Divided into five sections—“Jews and Judaism,” “Small Town Life,” “Business and Governance,” “Interaction,” and “Identity”—the essays cover a broad geographical and chronological span and address a variety of topics, including economics, politics, roles of women, ethnicity, and race. This organizational structure enhances the volume’s historical treatment of regional Jewish history and lends itself to cross-disciplinary study in fields such as cultural studies, religious studies, and political science.
