This paper is a book review of Mary Antin's memoir "The Promised Land" which very much supports the claim that the Jewish experience in the United States was fundamentally different from the Jewish experience in Europe. Indeed, "The Promised Land" reveals the story of a Jewish woman who lived most of her life virtually free from the vicious ingredients of anti-Semitism. Not only was she not victimized by anti-Semitism, but she was able to rise to prominence through her success in writing. In many respects, Mary Antin's success as a writer, and freedom from the more pernicious aspects of anti-Semitism, epitomized the difference between the American Jewish experience and the Jewish experience in Europe. .
