First published in 1990, Brookline: The Evolution of an American Jewish Suburb explores how Brookline became home to one of America's most vibrant Jewish communities.

For over a century, Brookline, Massachusetts, was one of the oldest and most elite suburbs in America.

By the end of the Second World War, its transformation into a distinctly Jewish suburb had begun.

Through the use of sociological oral history, the book seeks to present the social world of Brookline Jews as they experienced it.

Combined with a variety of documentary resources, such as newspapers and congregational "bulletins", it contextualises the accounts of the informants consulted to provide both factual and ethnographic validation and a detailed insight into the process by which this elite Yankee suburb became a core Jewish community.
