About this item
Contributors from American history and Jewish studies offer new perspectives on the complex history of the transnational relationship between European Jewish history and American Jewish history from the early modern period to the present. Their overall themes are colonial identities: the early modern period, finding a "New Zion" in America's civic culture, new roles and identities in an age of mass migration, and challenges for American Jewry after the Holocaust. Among specific topics are the myth of Europe in America's Judaism, the Philadelphia Conference (1869) and German reform: a historical moment in a transnational story of proximity and alienation, translating Wissenschaft: the emergence and self-emancipation of American Jewish scholarship 1860-1920, American Jewish perceptions of anti-Semitism as a transnational phenomenon after the First World War, and American Jews and the Middle East crisis.
