The Jewish East Side 1881-1924, edited by Milton Hindus. Paperback, 301 pages. Published by Transaction Publishers in 1995, second edition, printed in the USA.
Book is in very good to fine condition. The book is unread with tight binding, unblemished pages, but there is a small crease on the bottom left corner of the back cover (see photos).
From the back of the book: "a collection of literature and documents ranging from the autobiography of the sculptor Jacob Epstein and the novels of Abraham Cahan to the reporting of William Dean Howells and the fictional reconstruction of a vanished world by Henry Roth. The world is that of the old shtetl transplanted to a new, growing country, where "the ghetto" (in the years 1881-1924) was an unstable mixture of nostalgic elements and the pressures of American economic and social reality." Includes selections from Jacob Riis, Lillian Wald, and other writers.
