rving Cutler

Publisher: University of Illinois

The latest volume in the University of Illinois Press' Ethnic History of Chicago series offers a colorful picture of the growth and development of the Chicago Jewish community from its Old World roots to the present. Cutler begins with a section entitled "The First Wave," covering the Civil War period and the great Chicago fire and its aftermath. In "The Second Wave," Cutler focuses on eastern European Jewish emigrants and their role as Maxwell Street merchants, their benevolent societies, and the Yiddish theater. He also explores the Zionist and labor movements, Chicago's literary and music scenes, and changing neighborhoods and lifestyles in the last 50 years.
