This Major Reference series brings together a wide range of key international articles in law and legal theory. Many of these essays are not readily accessible, and their presentation in these volumes will provide a vital new resource for both research and teaching. Each volume is edited by leading international authorities who explain the significance and context of articles in an informative and complete introduction.

"C. Wright Mills used the term "sociological imagination" to describe the insight a person has who "understand[s] the larger historical scene in terms of its meaning for the inner life and external career of a variety of individuals." In this regard McGinity's book reveals her own strong sociological imagination."-American Jewish History, "Throughout her analysis, McGinity shows how the lives of Jewish women who intermarried demonstrate the complexity of Jewish identity in the United States."-Sarah Imhoff, "Religious Studies Review" "McGinity's story has great poignancy. Still Jewish demonstrates how, from insular beginnings surrounded by anti-Semitism to a world of inevitable intermarriage, Jewish women with gentile partners negotiated a new way to be Jewish in America." -"Moment", "If you thought there was nothing new to say about Jews and intermarriage, think again. McGinity's well-researched study focuses on American Jewish women who intermarried during the twentieth century and demonstrates that many of them not only remained Jewish but, paradoxically, became more Jewish, perhaps in response to the challenge of having a non-Jewish spouse. An invaluable addition to the scant scholarly literature on intermarriage, this volume shows that in intermarriage, as in so much else, gender matters." -Jonathan D. Sarna, author of "American Judaism: A History" "This compelling, impeccably researched book should make a huge difference in how we understand the contentious issue of intermarriage in the Jewish community. By putting Jewish women into the center of the story, McGinity offers a fresh perspective that challenges standard interpretations. It is a must-read for anyone interested in the history of Jewish life in America as well as for all those concerned with present-day patterns, policies, and outreach programs." -Joyce Antler, Samuel Lane Professor of American Jewish History and Culture at Brandeis University
