A Perspective On My Studies of American Jews

By Charles S. Liebman

Summer 1991

Liebman responds to the biographical information essayists Edward S. Shapiro, Chaim Waxman and Pamela Nadell use to analyze portions of his work. He attempts to "set the record straight" regarding his thoughts on the topics of liberalism, the prospects of American Jewry and the role of gender and women in his scholarship. Finally, he touches on aspects of his work that the essayists did not address: his research methods and research methods in the study of American Jewry; the importance of historical perspective; and his book reviews.
