History or humor, the diaspora or deli, the topics covered in this wide-ranging compendium of quotations (many never before published) provide a remarkable view of Jewish life in America - in all its variety and contradiction - during the past 100 years. It has been a century in which Jews have had a tremendous impact on America - and in which America has had a great impact on the Jewish community. This collection features more than 2,000 quotes, organized by subject and indexed by sources from Isaac Stern to Howard Stern, which reflect on the nuclear age, the World Wars, cultural and political trends, religious dilemmas, the Middle East, and the significant events - both personal and global - of this century. Two Jews, Three Opinions creates an intergenerational dialogue expressing not only wit and wisdom, but the experiences of day-to-day life.
