From Our Editors

We fashion identities in the context of a wider conversation about nationhood, to whom it belongs and what belonging means. Race and ethnicity, class, gender, and sexuality are all part of this conversation. They are salient aspects of social being from which economic practices, political policies, and popular discourses create "Americans." The history of Jews in the United States is a story of racial change that provides useful insights on race in America. How Jews Became White Folks and What That Says About Race in America by Karen Brodkin examines the effects these changes have had on the U.S.
