About the Author:

Emily Alice Katz teaches history at the University of California, Irvine.

Review:

“...we owe much to Emily Alice Katz for a well-organized and sturdy monograph that renews a scholarly discussion and offers a welcome corrective to the field.” ― H-Net Reviews (H-Judaic)

Bringing Zion Home will have appeal to a wide variety of disciplines and will serve as a great example of how to effectively and convincingly execute material and cultural analysis. Ultimately, Katz offers an engaging, colorful, and insightful investigation of the role of Israel in shaping American Jewish self-identity and culture.” ― American Historical Review

“Katz has written an engrossing account of efforts by American Jews to bring Israeli culture into their suburban lives during the postwar decades. She argues persuasively that American Jews shifted their focus away from Europe through their embrace of Israeli culture.” ― Journal of American History

“...[a] sophisticated work of historical scholarship ... [Katz] gives readers much to ponder.” ― CHOICE
