CHOICE Review

This collection of essays is an ambitious attempt to summarize and review the historical literature on the Polish American experience, trace the field's current state, and identify areas needing attention. Contributors generally are established scholars in their fields. The volume has a distinct emphasis on social history. Individual essays treat labor, radicalism, and workers; family, women, and gender; religion; and Jewish emigration prior to WW II. Other essays cover politics and post-WW II Polish emigration, and historiography. The collection begins with a very useful essay on the development of Polish American history, historical societies, and institutions. Although varied in style, approach, and quality, these essays are well researched and written; they provide valuable overviews of both Polonia's history and historical literature. The volume's inclusiveness is a strong point; however, although Polish Jews are covered, other groups, including Gypsies, are not. Similarly, many key aspects of Polonia are effectively traced, but treatment of assimilation, acculturation, and immigrant secular culture is absent. Highly recommended for those interested in US immigration and ethnic, social, Polish American, and Polish history. Upper-division undergraduates and above. J. Borchert; Cleveland State University
