explain himself to them, but
because, through them, "I began
to see a totally different way of
looking at the world." A way he

Jewish subject was not the least
bit out of character, Silberman
comments. He was raised in an
Orthodox home, "and the
Jewish preoccupation has been
constant."
,Critic - have , consistently
praised Silberman's books for
clear, succinct — and, especial-
ly, readable — handling of com-
plex problems. His earlier books
proved particularly timely, pro-
voking the rethinking of crucial
"givens" in race relations, educa-
tion, the criminal justice system
and business just as national
debates on those issues were
heating up. Silberman, who has
been called both a "scholar" and
a "journalist," prefers to be
known just as "an author." In
any event, his books are
--, remarkably free of technical
jargon and cliches, and are
eivened by frequent vignettes
about pivotal personalities.
One gem of a profile in A Cer-
tain People is of Irving Shapiro,
the former (and first Jewish)
chairman of Du Pont:

THIS WEEK'S SPECIALS

Past of the charm of this
unassuming, Yiddish-speaking
son of a Lithuanian-born parits
presser is that he was not willing
to join every club that wanted to
make him welcome. When, the
mast socially prestigious (and
most restricted) country club in
Wilmington asked the new chair-
man of Du Pont to become its
first Jewish member, he turned
them down. 'I told them it just
would not be comfortable for my
wife and me to socialize there,
Shapiro told [Silberman.] 'It
never occurred to them that I
might say no,' Shapiro said with
a smile.

'

Silberman tells how Shapiro
had earlier invited his superiors,
at Du Pont to his son's bar mitz-
vah. "I never realized there were
rabbis who did not have.beards,"
several executives told him.
Silberman completes his admir-
ing profile of Shapiro by repor-
ting on his service as both presi-
dent and campaign chairman of
the Jewish Federation of
Delaware, president of the local
Jewish home for the aged and a
trustee of the Jewish communi-
ty center.
Shapiro "has been 'a Jew in
the streets' as well as at home,"
an important point for Silber-
man, who makes much of
younger Jews' willingness to
publicly identify as Jews
nowadays, in contrast with the
timidity of earlier generations.
He 'marvels over the comfort
