Among the Americans who joined the ranks of the Doughboys fighting World War I were thousands of America's newest residents. Good Americans examines the contributions of Italian and Jewish immigrants, both on the homefront and overseas, in the Great War. While residing in strong, insular communities, both groups faced a barrage of demands to participate in a conflict that had been raging in their home countries for nearly three years. Italians and Jews "did their bit" in relief, recruitment, conservation, and war bond campaigns, while immigrants and second-generation ethnic soldiers fought on the Western front. Within a year of the Armistice, they found themselves redefined as foreigners and perceived as a major threat to American life, rather than remembered as participants in its defense. Wartime experiences, Christopher Sterba argues, served to deeply politicize first and second generation immigrants, greatly accelerating their transformation from relatively powerless newcomers to a major political force in the United States during the New Deal and beyond.

Jehuda Reinharz, born in Haifa in 1944, spent his childhood in Israel and his adolescence in Germany, and moved with his family to the United States when he was seventeen. These three diverse geographies and the experiences they engendered shaped his formative years and the future of a prolific scholar who devoted his life to the study of the central role of leadership as Jews faced the challenges of emancipation and integration in Germany, the rise of modern antisemitism, the formation of Zionist youth culture and politics, and the transformation of Jewish politics in Palestine and the State of Israel. In this volume, eminent scholars in their respective fields extend the lines of Reinharz's research interests and personal activism by focusing on the ideological, political, and scholarly contributions of a diverse range of individuals in Jewish history. Essays are clustered around five central themes: ideology and politics; statecraft; intellectual, social and cultural spheres; witnessing history; and in the academy. This volume offers a panoramic view of modern Jewish history through engaging essays that celebrate Reinharz's rich contribution as a path-breaking and prolific scholar, teacher, and leader in the academy and beyond.

"In this volume, [the author] focuses on how the eastern European Jewish migration, which set the tone for American Jewry in the final decades of the nineteenth century, confronted the issue of accommodation and group survival. A distinctive political and general culture, which amalgamated traditional Jewish and new American values, was established by the immigrant generation. That Yiddish-speaking transitional culture, which prevailed in the ethnic enclaves of the cities, was considerably modified once Jews left these core communities and after World War I, the cultural energy of the immigrant generation waned"--Series editor's foreword.

This book offers a new interpretation of a critical chapter in the history of the Zionist-Palestine conflict and the British Empire in the Middle East. It contends that the Balfour Declaration was one of many British propaganda policies during the World War I that were underpinned by misconceived notions of ethnicity, ethnic power and nationalism.

There is so much to Louis Harap's three volumes, this extraordinary trilogy, that a reviewer can only hint at the depth, penetrating intelligence, research, and insight of the author. This is a monumental work. "American Jewish Archives" This volume, the final one in a three-part series on the Jewish presence in twentieth-century American literature, first examines the special literary relationship of Blacks and Jews as exemplified in the writings of the two groups. Harap locates the historical roots of this relationship in Black folklore and history and finds illustrations of it in the work of Black novelists from Richard Wright to Paule Marshall. He examines the partial breakdown of this relationship in both social and literary terms during the 1970s.

The alliance between Israel and the United States has required careful nurturing over a considerable period of time to evolve into the warm and intimate association of the late twentieth century. In the years between the two world wars, a crucial time in the development of the framework for statehood and of the new Hebrew-speaking society, the Israeli foundation of the relationship with America was officially laid, as the United States emerged as the only likely political and financial patron of Zionism. To realize and capitalize upon this potential, however, and to gain broad acceptance for an American connection in the yishuv, required careful cultivation of many links by the leaders of a community which had deep ambivalence about America. By the end of the war, six outstanding leaders had succeeded - sometimes without intending to do so - in weaving an intricate and essential network of ties to America that bound the two countries closer together in the areas of labor, finance, business, politics, public health and medicine, education, social welfare, literature, and journalism. In six rich, biographical chapters, Michael Brown studies these central figures of the yishuv: Revisionist-Zionist maverick Vladimir Jabotinsky; poet Chaim Nahman Bialik; influential labor leader Berl Katznelson; the American-born founder of Hadassah, Henrietta Szold; beloved American-raised Zionist leader and later prime minister, Golda Meir; and David Ben-Gurion, the foremost statesman of the era. Making use of a wide range of archival and primary sources in English, Hebrew, and other languages, Brown focuses on the leaders' involvement with and image of America, both positive and negative, as well as the impact of America on their lives and careers.
