Editorial Reviews

Review

Diner's engaging study of the 1820-80 period is replete with fresh insights and a provocative thesis. Having mined the historical and personal literature of the period, Diner questions the sharp dichotomy usually drawn between the German Jews and East Europeans who came later, challenges the assumption of the ethnic homogeneity of 'German' Jewish immigration in her period, and contends that German Jewish assimilation more accurately ought to be portrayed as adaption, not assimilation... Original and exciting.
