Publisher Description

Lost on the Map of the World explores Jewish-American women's enduring quest from ca. 1890 to the present to find a home(land) where they can have a Jewish identity and still enjoy gender equality. Originally, many were torn between obedience to confining patriarchal tradition and the attractions of an upwardly mobile secular lifestyle. Others opposed all traditional patriarchal constraints against women everywhere and engaged in political activism to improve the quality of all lives, not only their own. In contrast, many 'new wave' Jewish-American women have succeeded in integrating feminism into their Jewish identity, although they have so far failed in their quest to do so in Israel.

Review

'Lost on the Map of the World' is a unique and powerful collection of essays and memoirs that gives voice to the hopes, yearnings and inevitable contradictions inherent in Jewish American women's search for a place in which they can truly feel "at home," a place free of sexism and anti-Semitism, a place that does not yet exist. In this context, the contributors offer new readings of well-known fictional texts as diverse as Anzia Yezierska's 'Bread Givers', E. M. Broner's 'A Weave of Women', and Erica Jong's 'Fear of Flying'. The memoirs, set in places as diverse as post-Holocaust Poland, Mexico, Israel, and the United States, offer an intimate and honest portrayal of the struggle to develop Jewish/feminist personal and professional identity. This combination of critical readings and personal reflections make this book an excellent choice for a wide variety of classes, especially in Women's Studies, Jewish Studies, American Studies and Ethnic Studies.
