While some observers have warned against the seductiveness of so benign and open a social order, Whitfield shows how American Jews have reconciled birthright and citizenship and have adapted successfully to an environment of liberty and opportunity without abandoning the claims of a particular religious and ethnic identity. This volume will appeal to both Jew and Gentile, as well as to scholars and the general reader - indeed, to anyone intrigued by the possibilities of pluralism."--BOOK JACKET." ;
