Adapting to Abundance by Andrew Heinze

Well written... creative in its use of a wide range of primary source material. -- Canadian Review of American Studies| A very important book... at the cutting edge of what should be an exciting new scholarly development... opening up whole areas of behavior which [historians] previously shrugged off as irrelevant. -- Journal of American Ethnic History| An important book that invites reflection upon the national character. -- American Jewish Archives| Raises interesting questions about the immigrant experience in a gracefully written style. -- Journal of Consumer Affairs| A fascinating study that says as much about the U.S. as it does about its Americanizing immigrants. -- Choice| Between 1880 and 1914, Eastern European Jewish immigrants in New Yorks Lower East Side defined themselves as American not only by their occupations or education but by their spending practices as well. Jewish immigrants assimilated into American culture through the purchase of fashions, material goods, and resort vacations, combined with Jewish social and religious traditions to create a unique and innovative American identity.
