Abstract :

Mary Antin's book, "The Promised Land," was a national best seller in 1912. In this book, she employed literary inventiveness to make herself more appealing to the general American public. She intentionally omitted material to prevent endangering her authority or negatively affect her readers' opinion of Jews, according to an analysis of the original manuscript and the published book.
