A social history of Jewish women in Imperial Germany, this study synthesizes German, women's, and Jewish history. The book explores the private-familial and religious-lives of the German-Jewish bourgeoisie and the public roles of Jewish women in the university, paid employment and social service. It analyses the changing roles of Jewish women as members of an economically mobile, but socially spurned minority. The author emphasizes the crucial role women played in creating the Jewish middle class, as well as their dual role within the Jewish family and community as powerful agents of class formation and acculturation and determined upholders of tradition.

MEDIA REVIEWS
'Marion Kaplan's thoroughtly researched study provedes a reassessment of the history of this group, which has been the subject of extensive research in the last decade, in the light of the experiences of Jewish bourgeois women. The study is strongest as a contribution to the social history of the German bourgeoisie - Jewish and non-Jewish.' Journal of Jewish Studies
