Lower East Side Memories:
A Jewish Place in America
Hasia R. Diner

Book Description | Table of Contents
Chapter 1

ADDITIONAL REVIEWS:

"The cumulative impact of Diner's pellucid prose, rich insights, and masterful control of variegated cultural, literary, and historical sources is invigorating indeed."--Benny Kraut, American Historical Review

"A highly readable book. . . . The intelligent perspective of a person steeped in American Jewish history informs the work."--Elisabeth Israels Perry, The Journal of American History

ADDITIONAL ENDORSEMENTS:

"Hasia Diner has written a richly researched and deeply informed account of the distinctive role New York's Lower East Side holds in American Jewish memory. She knows what the Lower East Side was; her book goes further and tells us what it has become in memory and nostalgia."--Nathan Glazer, Harvard University

"Lower East Side Memories is a powerfully explicated, imaginatively researched, sensitively elaborated, and spiritedly written work of historical scholarship. Few subjects have been so fortunate as to inspire the passion, dedication, imagination, excitement, and scholarly acumen and range that give this book such vibrancy and power."--Moses Rischin, author of The Promised City

"In this pathbreaking book, Hasia Diner significantly advances the field of American Jewish history. Anyone interested in the history of American Jewry, in New York City, or in issues of historical memory will want to read it."--Daniel Soyer, Fordham University
