9780300084689: Joining the Club: A History of Jews and Yale, Revised edition

This unique and richly informative addition to American educational, religious, and cultural history examines the college life of Jews at Yale from the first Jewish graduate in 1809 to the present time, drawing comparisons to the Jewish experience at other elite colleges and universities and to the experiences of other minorities at Yale. In this revised edition, Oren draws on new interviews and references to present the dramatic events of the past twenty years, describing the tensions between majority and minority cultures in an academic world increasingly committed to inclusiveness and the solidification of meritocracy.

About the Author:

Dan A. Oren, M.D., is associate professor of psychiatry at the Yale University School of Medicine.

From Library Journal:

Using archival records and interviews, Oren, a Yale graduate currently at the medical school, has produced a thoroughly researched, well-written account of the Jewish experience at Yale from the first Jewish graduate in 1809 to the present. Not only does he chronicle the history of Jews at Yale, but he compares it with the experiences of other minorities at that institution as well as the saga of Jews at other elite schools. The discriminatory quota system and other problems that faced Jews in American higher education during much of the 20th century are well documented. An important work, highly recommended. Leonard Grundt, Nassau Community Coll. Lib., Garden City, N.Y.
