Description:
Entertaining America is a captivating look at one of the longest-running and most provocative public discussions in America: the relationship between the nation's Jews and its entertainment media. This colorfully written, lavishly illustrated book surveys how Jews have participated in and been identified with American movies, radio, and television from the nickelodeion era at the turn of the twentieth century to the present day.

Throughout, the tone is lively, the design is playful, and key points are visually enhanced by stills, publicity photos, and memorabilia. This anthology of original analyses and primary texts covers a wide range of topics, from The Goldbergs, movie moguls, and "virtual Jews" to Seinfeld and Adam Sandler.

200 duotone photos, 116 halftone photos, with contributions by Maurice Berger, Michael Bronski, Mel Gordon, Amelia S. Holberg, David Marc, Deborah Dash Moore, Samuel J. Rosenthal, Ben Singer, Mark Slobin, Judith Thissen, Donald Weber, and others

Entertaining America, which accompanies an exhibition opening at The Jewish Museum, is itself tremendously entertaining while providing the most expansive, authoritative look at this fascinating subject. In its pages, readers will find ample material to help them formulate their own responses to this frank, contentious, multilayered discussion.
