For the centennial of its first publication: a new edition of a seminal work on the American immigrant experience Weaving introspection with political commentary, biography with history, The Promised Land, first published in 1912, brings to life the transformation of an Eastern European Jewish immigrant into an American citizen. Mary Antin recounts "the process of uprooting, transportation, replanting, acclimatization, and development that took place in [her] own soul" and reveals the impact of a new culture and new standards of behavior on her family. A feeling of division'between Russia and America, Jews and Gentiles, Yiddish and English'ever-present in her narrative is balanced by insights, amusing and serious, into ways to overcome it.

2 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Best known as an immigrant autobiographer - primarily for the much-celebrated Promised Land (1912) and From Plotzk to Boston - Mary Antin (1881-1949) wrote regularly for the Atlantic Monthly and played an influential role in the Boston and New York Jewish literary communities, as well as national political campaigns. With the publication of her letters, Evelyn Salz restores her to a prominent place in American literature." "Throughout her life, Antin corresponded with a wide range of people from Israel Zangwill and Theodore Roosevelt to Zionists Horace Kallen and Bernard G. Richards, as well as writer and editor Louis Lipsky, industrialist Thomas A. Watson, and Rabbi Abraham Cronbach. This correspondence (1899-1949) follows Antin's life from a precocious adolescence through her years of fame and public involvement (after writing The Promised Land) and her slow descent into mental illness and eventual obscurity."--Jacket
