This is a long haul to read, but worth every minute. Impeccable scholarship, written with a discerning historical perspective and standards, as well as a finely honed (but not obtrusive) moral sense. A much needed corrective to the majority of postwar American Jewish history. It's easy to get lost in the details while reading, but Diner manages to continually remind you over her overarching purpose without getting pedantic (a difficult balance to strike in a book this long).
