Antisemitism in America by Leonard Dinnerstein ( Book )
17 editions published between 1994 and 1995 in English and held by 2,242 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Is antisemitism on the rise in America? Did the "hymietown" comment by Jesse Jackson and the Crown Heights riot signal a resurgence of antisemitism among blacks? The surprising answer to both questions, according to Leonard Dinnerstein, is no--Jews have never been more at home in America. But what we are seeing today, he writes, are the well-publicized results of a long tradition of prejudice, suspicion, and hatred against Jews--the direct product of the Christian teachings underlying so much of America's national heritage.

The Leo Frank case by Leonard Dinnerstein ( Book )
22 editions published between 1966 and 2008 in English and held by 1,431 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In April 1913 the body of thirteen-year-old Mary Phagan was found in the basement of the Atlanta pencil factory where she worked. Leo Frank, the northern Jew who managed the factory and the last person who admitted seeing her alive, was arrested and accused of her murder. After two years of trials highlighted by sensational newspaper coverage, popular hysteria, and legal demagogery, Frank was sentenced to death. Georgia's governor commuted the sentence to life imprisonment. But then an outraged mob, dedicated to the execution of "justice," kidnapped Frank from prison and lynched him near Mary's hometown. The only full account of the murders of Mary Phagan and Leo Frank includes a new preface presenting the most recent evidence of Frank's innocence

Now in its fifth edition, Natives and Strangers: A History of Ethnic Americans addresses these and many other vital questions. A comprehensive and accessible text, this unique volume explores various aspects of American minority group history. Examining the impact that America has had on minority peoples and cultures--and vice versa--it also provides insights into the different conditions, conflicts, and contradictions that members of American minority groups experienced. As in earlier editions, the fifth edition integrates the experiences of various racial, religious, and national minorities from around the globe--including American Indians, African Americans, and immigrants from Europe, Asia, Latin America, and other parts of the world--explaining how their histories intertwined with the emergence of modern America. Revised, updated, and condensed, the fifth edition of Natives and Strangers incorporates the latest research on such critical topics as American Indian affairs, western American development, and African American experiences. It also focuses on successive waves of different immigrants while exploring the evolution and complexities of American immigration policies. The authors conclude with reflections on where the nation stands today as an ethnically and racially diverse society. Featuring anecdotes, charts, graphs, tables, and an extensive updated bibliography, Natives and Strangers, Fifth Edition, is ideal for undergraduate courses that cover immigration, American social history, and American ethnic groups. -- Back cover
