Summary Walter Roth delves deep into the archives of Chicago's Jewish past, and provides a new collection of illuminating essays on its various aspects. Booklist said of his previous collection, Looking Backward: True Stories from Chicago's Jewish Past,?Roth writes about the well-known and the not-so-well-known, bringing to life the peOut of Printle, events and institutions that shaped the Jewish community." Roth is also co-author of An Accidental Anarchist, about the killing of a Jewish immigrant by Chicago's Chief of Police in 1908. Kirkus Reviews said,?The authors have skillfully removed the dust.
