La Belle Juive Jewess-ence as Disease Celebrity and Consumption Big Jewish Mamas Jewing Up Taming the Vildechaya I am Woman, Hear Me Roar Mimicking Whiteness


'Mock's book, is an ambitious 'cornucopia' of ideas and challenges to received wisdom on Jewishness, gender, sexuality, identity, performance, comedy, celebrity culture, and Freud. It reinvigorates the study of gender and performance, of race and culture, of historiographic practice in performance through the prism of the work of a wide range of Jewish women performers from stage and screen actors to stand up comics. In tracing a history, Jewishness, the female and performance is its subject, but its value and originality also lies in the book's resonance as a wider cultural and intellectual study.' - Viv Gardner, Professor of Theatre Studies at the University of Manchester
