A unique presentation of the history of Jewish life and culture in the United States over the past 500 years Jews in America is a graphic history that uses the comic book format—an artistic expression as American as jazz—to depict five centuries of Jewish life in this country. With its blend of humor, history, and old-fashioned sentimentality, Gantz, an artist who has spent a lifetime using paper and ink to present social commentary and issues with wry wit, illustrates the prominence of Jews in American history from the time Columbus first set foot in the New World. Jews in America will appeal to readers from ages 12 to 120.

Editorial Reviews

"Award-winning author-illustrator Gantz brings history alive through cartoons in his [newly] expanded and updated book . . . This work is good for personal study, family or school activities, and gifts, and would be a valuable addition to the public library, synagogue library, and Judaic Studies collections in academic libraries."—Multicultural Review
