A review of the book, Memories of Migration: Gender, Ethnicity, and Work in the Lives of Jewish and Italian Women in New York, 1870–1924 by Kathie Friedman-Kasaba is presented. Friedman-Kasaba's work turns out to be flat, derivative, and decontextualized. She presents, for example, a good deal of material pertaining to migrations, migration theory, and the formation of class and ethnicity, but does not draw clear connections to her main focus of analysis. Additionally, she does not cite a single work in Yiddish or Italian, indicating that she had no access to the words of the principal subjects of her books. She bases much of her observation on the words of others — often outside observers — and she draws too heavily on the findings of other historians.
