Pressestimmen"As a student of Jewish American popular culture, I was most impressed by those entries that are models of distillation and authoritativeness. Jon Stratton on the "Jewish Brill Building," the famous Broadway landmark where pop music composers in their youth--like Carole King (ne Klein), Neal Sedaka, and numerous others--worked, is superb, as is the entry on Jewish comedy by Mark Shechner. ...From such wonderful juxtapositions, which fill this impressive reference book, an attentive reader can appreciate the myriad figures and zones of popular culture shaped by Jewish Americansover the past one hundred years." - Jewish Book World
