“Marrying Out: Jewish Men, Intermarriage, and Fatherhood makes a significant contribution to a growing scholarship on intermarriage in the United States. It’s attention to gender, its excellent chapter on non-Jewish wives, its engaging chapter on popular portrayals of intermarriage, and its insightful analysis of Jewish men’s narratives of their lives as lovers, husbands, and fathers promises to set a new standard for studies of intermarriage. Written in a lively style, it will speak to an audience beyond the academic community of scholars and students, though it should be attractive for undergraduate courses on American Jews. It engages communal debates on intermarriage as well as scholarly ones and sets forth an original and provocative thesis.”
