A new 30th Anniversary paperback edition of an award-winning
Winner of the National Book Award, 1976
World of Our Fathers traces the story of Eastern Europe's Jews
to America over four decades. Beginning in the 1880s, it offers a
rich portrayal of the East European Jewish experience in New York,
and shows how the immigrant generation tried to maintain their
Yiddish culture while becoming American. It is essential reading
for those interested in understanding why these forebears to many
of today's American Jews made the decision to leave their
homelands, the challenges these new Jewish Americans faced, and how
they experienced every aspect of immigrant life in the early part
of the twentieth century.
This invaluable contribution to Jewish literature and culture is
now back in print in a new paperback edition, which includes a new
foreword by noted author and literary critic Morris Dickstein.
