[nice clean book with no discernible wear; jacket shows only light surface scratching]. (B&W photographs) In this book, the author "provides an illuminating and often amusing history of one of the best-known figures in popular culture -- the Jewish Mother. Whether drawn as self-sacrificing or manipulative, in countless films, novels, radio and television programs, stand-up comedy, and psychological and historical studies, she appears as a colossal figure, intensely involved in the lives of her children. [The author] traces the odyssey of ths compelling personality through decades of American culture."
