Goldstein-Goren Series in American Jewish History

Emerging out of the Goldstein-Goren Center for American Jewish History at New York University, this new series strives to publish the most outstanding and provocative works in the field of American Jewish history today. It brings to both the scholarly community and the broad reading public new research and analysis on the mutual impact of America and the Jews. American Jewish history is here broadly defined, encompassing projects that interrogate conventional geographic borders as well as those which look critically at assumed definitions of Jewish group membership. In addition to distinguished works of original scholarship, the series may also publish translations, re-issued classics, or works of reference.
