Hungering for America : Italian, Irish, and Jewish foodways in the age of migration by Hasia R Diner( Book )

20 editions published between 2001 and 2003 in English and Undetermined and held by 737 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Hungering for America tells the stories of three distinctive groups and their unique culinary dramas. Italian immigrants transformed the food of their upper classes and of sacred days into a generic "Italian" food that inspired community pride and cohesion. Irish immigrants, in contrast, loath to mimic the foodways of the Protestant British elite, diminished food as a marker of ethnicity. And East European Jews, who venerated food as the vital center of family and religious practice, found that dietary restrictions jarred with America's boundless choices."--Jacket
We remember with reverence and love : American Jews and the myth of silence after the Holocaust, 1945-1962 by Hasia R Diner( Book )

16 editions published between 2009 and 2010 in English and held by 691 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

It has become an accepted truth: after World War II, American Jews chose to be silent about the mass murder of millions of their European brothers and sisters at the hands of the Nazis. In a compelling work sure to draw fire from academics and pundits alike, Hasia R. Diner shows this assumption of silence to be categorically false

Lower East Side memories : a Jewish place in America by Hasia R Diner( Book )

10 editions published between 2000 and 2002 in English and held by 645 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Manhattan's Lower East Side stands for Jewish experience in America. With the possible exception of African-Americans and Harlem, no ethnic group has been so thoroughly understood and imagined through a particular chunk of space. To learn when and why this dark warren of pushcartlined streets became an icon, Hasia Diner follows a wide trail of high and popular culture. She examines children's stories, novels, movies, museum exhibits, television shows, summer-camp reenactments, walking tours, consumer catalogues, and photos hung on deli walls far from Manhattan."--Jacket

From haven to home : 350 years of Jewish life in America( Book )

5 editions published between 2004 and 2005 in English and held by 545 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The year 2004 marks the 350th anniversary of the first Jewish settlement in America. From Haven to Home celebrates this important occasion by bringing together an eminent group of historians who take stock of American Jewish life, from the arrival of the first small group in Manhattan in 1654 to the present." "The essays are amply illustrated with items from the vast Judaica Americana collections of the Library of Congress, among them letters from presidents Washington and Jefferson to prominent leaders of the American Jewish community, the first Hebrew Bible printed in America, and the first American Yiddish cookbook, as well as selections of photographs, prints, diaries, maps, and sheet music." "In telling the story of diverse groups of Jewish immigrants, who over the centuries made the United States their home, From Haven to Home examines the intertwined themes, and sometimes conflicting aims, of accommodation, assertion, adaption, and acculturation that have characterized the American Jewish experience from its beginnings in 1654 to the present day."--Jacket
From arrival to incorporation : migrants to the U.S. in a global era by Elliott Robert Barkan( Book )

13 editions published between 2007 and 2008 in English and held by 354 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The United States is once again in the midst of a peak period of immigration. By 2005, more than 35 million legal and illegal migrants were present in the United States. At different rates and with differing degrees of difficulty, a great many will be incorporated into American society and culture. Leading immigration experts in history, sociology, anthropology, economics, and political science here offer multiethnic and multidisciplinary perspectives on the challenges confronting immigrants adapting to a new society. How will these recent arrivals become Americans? Does the journey to the U.S. demand abandoning the past? How is the United States changing even as it requires change from those who come here? Broad thematic essays are coupled with case studies and concluding essays analyzing contemporary issues facing Muslim newcomers in the wake of 9/11. Together, they offer a vibrant portrait of America s new populations today
A new promised land : a history of Jews in America by Hasia R Diner( Book )

5 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 353 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Roads taken : the great Jewish migrations to the New World and the peddlers who forged the way by Hasia R Diner( Book )

7 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 328 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Between the late 1700s and the 1920s, nearly one-third of the world's Jews emigrated to new lands. Crossing borders and often oceans, they followed paths paved by intrepid peddlers who preceded them. This book is the first to tell the remarkable story of the Jewish men who put packs on their backs and traveled forth, house to house, farm to farm, mining camp to mining camp, to sell their goods to peoples across the world. Persistent and resourceful, these peddlers propelled a mass migration of Jewish families out of central and eastern Europe, north Africa, and the Ottoman Empire to destinations as far-flung as the United States, Great Britain, South Africa, and Latin America. Hasia Diner tells the story of millions of discontented young Jewish men who sought opportunity abroad, leaving parents, wives, and sweethearts behind. Wherever they went, they learned unfamiliar languages and customs, endured loneliness, battled the elements, and proffered goods from the metropolis to people of the hinterlands. In the Irish Midlands, the Adirondacks of New York, the mining camps of New South Wales, and so many other places, these traveling men brought change--to themselves and the families who later followed, to the women whose homes and communities they entered, and ultimately to the geography of Jewish history."--Publisher's description
