"The Promised Land" recounts the transformation of an East European Jewish immigrant into an American citizen. It was written in 1912 by Mary Antin, who describes the complex process of acclimation and assimilation by combining political comments, biographical facts, and history. As a Jewish immigrant herself, Antin explains how the process transformed her entire being and challenged age-old traditions and expectations of her as a Jewish woman living in a Jewish community. While the book highlights the oppression of Jews in Europe and the cultural constraints on Jewish women in particular, it also highlights the ability of Jewish women to break free from those constraints. It celebrates the promise of the American Dream, and it contrasts life in Old World Jewish communities with life in America.
