Book Review: Daughters Of Israel, Daughters Of The South

Daughters Of Israel, Daughters Of The South: Southern Jewish Women And Identity in the Antebellum and Civil War South by Jennifer A. Stollman was reviewed in the latest issue of American Studies (Vol. 53, no. 2) by Anders Bo Rasmussen (University of Southern Denmark). Rasmussen writes: “. . . Stollman’s impressive command of the existing primary sources and secondary literature. . . offer[s] an intriguing addition to the historiography of the (upper-class) Jewish American experience before 1865. Stollman clearly shows that Judaism remained a part of her subjects’ private—and sometimes public—lives in the antebellum South.
