American Overture, by Abram Vossen Goodman
This volume is a valuable contribution toward the materials out of which the history of Jews in America will eventually be written. Like the original researches of Lee M. Friedman, Mr. Goodman’s book is a collection of historical bits and incidents told interestingly and amusingly. The author, however, gives his narrative some unity by centering it around the struggle of the early Jewish settlers for full religious and civil rights on American soil.
