Jewish Peoplehood : an American Innovation by Noam Pianko( )

9 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 1,053 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

American Jews today report a strong sense of belonging to the Jewish people. Indeed, Jewish peoplehood has eclipsed religion--as well as ethnicity and nationality--as the essence of what binds Jews around the globe to one another. This book highlights the current significance and future relevance of "peoplehood" by tracing the rise, transformation, and return of this novel term
Diaspora Jewish nationalism and identity in America, 1914-1967 by Noam Pianko( Book )

4 editions published between 2004 and 2005 in English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Scholars of Jewish and American history alike have much to learn by examining expressions of Jewish nationalism in America. These thinkers' embrace of America was far more contested than American Jewish historians generally acknowledge. While historians often illustrate the influence of intellectual acculturation, few trace the strategies by which Jewish thinkers attempted to alter the dominant political discourse. Jewish thinkers were far from passive adaptors of American intellectual currents. Working at the permeable semantic boundaries between categories of nationalism, ethnicity, religion, and race, Jewish intellectuals challenged many basic assumptions of American political life and played an integral role in the construction of the majority culture. In addition, this project reveals that these four thinkers' formulations prefigured many contemporary debates regarding ethnicity and multiculturalism. As more and more scholars puzzle over the factors that constitute transnational ethno-religious identities, as well as the nature of the relationship binding diaspora communities with their homelands, the pioneering work of these four thinkers will provide fruitful historical models for consideration
