Hidden Heritage: The Legacy of the Crypto-Jews

University of California Press, 2002 - 197 pàgines
"Janet Jacobs enters fearlessly into the house of mirrors that is Jewish-Hispanic identity, where nothing is what it appears to be. Her ethnography is about the uses of silence and the excuses of memory."--Ilan Stavans, author of On Borrowed Words: A Memoir of Language

"Janet Jacobs's book is a beautifully written, compelling account of the experiences of contemporary crypto-Jews who are struggling to locate the meanings of their various identities. I know of no other works that cover this material, and Jacobs does so in a rich finely nuanced way in which she deals with issues of family, memory, community, and belonging. I love the way she draws on such a wide variety of materials to explore this topic in a wide-ranging and impressive way."--Lynn Davidman, author of Tradition in a Rootless World
