Seminar paper from the year 2001 in the subject American Studies - Culture and Applied Geography, grade: 1,7 (B), University of Potsdam (Anglistik/Amerikanistik), course: Jewish American History and Life from the 1840s to WWI, 8 entries in the bibliography, language: English, abstract: Women always had a fixed position in Jewish religion and life. They had to live in a strictly patriarchal society and obey its rules. Jewish women had no say in public matters but played an important role in the Jewish home and family. When they immigrated to America, their customs often clashed with the American way. It was especially hard for the women to assimilate, leaving a tradition so old behind. But the Jewish women were strong and self-confident, found means of helping themselves through the most difficult times and they stuck together as a group. Because of their many trials and being forced to get on with life in a foreign and even partly hostile cultural surrounding, Jewish women kept gaining strength until they even started a movement later known as emancipation of women.
The last ten years have witnessed an enormous growth in American interest in Asia and Asian/American history. In particular, a set of key Asian historical moments have recently become the subject of intense American cultural scrutiny, namely China’s Cultural Revolution and its aftermath; the Korean American war and its legacy; the era of Japanese geisha culture and its subsequent decline; and China’s one-child policy and the rise of transracial, international adoption in its wake. Grice examines and accounts for this cultural and literary preoccupation, exploring the corresponding historical-political situations that have both circumscribed and enabled greater cultural and political contact between Asia and America.
When the Handbook for Research in American History was first published, reviewers called it "an excellent tool for historians of all interests and levels of experience . . . simple to use, and concisely worded" (Western Historical Quarterly) and "an excellent work that fulfills its title in being portable yet well-filled" (Reference Reviews). The Journal of American History added, "It is not easy to produce a reference work that is utilitarian and enriching and does not duplicate existing works. Professor Prucha has done the job very well." This second, revised edition takes account of the revolution that is occurring in bibliographic science as printed reference works extend to electronic databases, CD-ROMs, and online networks such as the Internet. Focusing on and expanding the major section of the original Handbook, it provides information on traditional printed works, describes new guides and updated versions of old ones, notes the availability of reference works and of some full-text sources in electronic form, and discusses the usefulness to researchers of different kinds of material and the forms in which they are available. Extensive cross-referencing and a detailed index that includes authors, subjects, and titles enhance the book's usefulness.
Winner of the 1964 Pulitzer Prize in Non-Fiction. In this award-winning classic work of consensus history, Richard Hofstadter, author of The Age of Reform, examines the role of social movements in the perception of intellect in American life. "As Mr. Hofstadter unfolds the fascinating story, it is no crude battle of eggheads and fatheads. It is a rich, complex, shifting picture of the life of the mind in a society dominated by the ideal of practical success." --Robert Peel in the Christian Science Monitor
