About this Item

24 cm. xiii, [1]m 325, [3] pages. Endpaper map. List of Tables. List of Figures. Illustrations. Appendix 1: Sources and Techniques. Appendix 2: Tables. Selected Bibliography. Notes. Index. Dr. Hertzberg holds a Ph.D. degree from the University of Chicago where he specialized in American social and ethnic history. He has taught at Carleton College and the University of Minnesota. His articles have appeared in a variety of scholarly journals. He is a member of the Institute for Research in History. Atlanta, the Gate City of the New South, forms an excellent setting for the study of this distinct group. The first Jews settled there in 1845, only two years after the town's incorporation at Marthasville, but increasing numbers arrived after the Civil War, and by 1915 the metropolis harbored one of the regions three largest communities. The half century following Appomattox began with the Jewish newcomers being hailed as harbingers of commercial progress and opportunity, and ended with the notorious Leo Frank case--a virulent outbreak of anti-Semitism culminating in the lynching of a Jewish industrialist wrongfully convicted of murdering a Gentile girl. Using the sources and techniques of the "new social history", Dr. Hertzberg has compiled data on nearly every Jew who resided in Atlanta in 1850, 1860, 1870, and 1896. His path-breaking work also discusses such traditional concerns as communal origins, institutional growth, and shifting religious currents. First Edition [stated], presumed first printing.
