Explorations in Sights and Sounds
Hidden in these quiet pages is a probing analysis of what has happened to all Americans, not just the Jewish poor who went to City College. Gorelick begins by reexamining the myth, now used against other ethnic groups, that "docile Jews, living in safe slums, gratefully, respectfully, obediently lap up the gifts of Anglo-Saxon culture to the admiration and love of their teachers."
