"Kaufman traces the genealogy of Kallen’s thought and presents a nuanced and fluid understanding of his contributions. This careful and detailed study of Kallen’s complete oeuvre provides a relevant lens for thinking about issues related to American pluralism and Jewish identity today."—Noam Pianko, University of Washington

"This book is without comparison the best biographic text on Kallen I have read. The author brings rich material from Kallen’s archive to the fore, and in the process, shows us important aspects of the struggle to define Jewish identity in America."—Jakob Egholm Feldt, Roskilde University, Denmark
