Book Review: Fighting to Become Americans: Assimilation and Trouble Between Jewish Women and Jewish Men

By Lynn Davidman

Jewish Family & Life (JFL Media), April 2002

Fighting to Become Americans: Assimilation and Trouble Between Jewish Women and Jewish Men is an in-depth analysis of how 20th Century Jews tried to integrate into the larger American society and how the dominant society dealt with them. The book demonstrates how a group's internal constructions of self are always related to how the external society views that group.
