have had to invest $15,000-
$20,00 0 on a book, now we
only have to draw $10,000
from our budget, and we get
the remainder from outside
sources."
Along with many other in-
dividual supporters, the Mor-
ris and Emma Schaver Fund,
established in the '60s, has
subsidized much of the
Jewish literature which has
been published through the
WSU Press over the years.
Another significant fund
raiser is the Board of Ad-
visors, set up by Detroit ad
executive Leonard Simons
(for whom the WSU Press
building is named) over 30
years ago. For membership
on the board, private citizens
pay an annual fee of $100 or
more, which goes toward ad-
vertising, promotion of books,
and alleviating publication
costs. Presently, according to
Simons, the board consists of
about 50 members. "There's
no limit on membership," he
says. "After all, the more we
have in the fund, the more
books we can publish."
A few of the Judaica titles
brought out this year by the
WSU Press include:

THE DETROIT JEWISH NEWS

biography/poem put together
by poet Ruth Whitman and
focusing on the last nine
months in the life of the
World War II heroine who
was executed by the Nazis in
her native Hungary when she
was 23.
• Star Children, a fic-
tionalized account of the chil-
dren imprisoned at Bergen-
Belsen, written by Dutch
author Clara Asscher-
Pinkhof, who was herself sent
to Bergen-Belsen in 1943.
The Wayne State publication
marks the first English
translation of the book.
• A Shtetl and Other Novel-
las, a new edition of an out-
of-print collection by five
Yiddish masters: I.M. Weis-
senberg, Mendele Mocher
Sforim, S. Ansky, David
Bergelson
and Joseph

Opatoshu. It is edited by
Ruth Wisse, and focusses on
the Jewish confrontation with
modernity.

• The Jews of Detroit:
1762-1914, brought out last

Sept. 16 to coincide with the
60th anniversary of the
Jewish Welfare Federation,
The Jews of Detroit received
an initial printing of 3,000
copies (about twice the aver-
age for university press pub-
lications), and has already
sold 1,200 copies. Written by
former Michiganian Robert
Rockaway (who now teaches
at Tel Aviv University), it
evolved from his doctoral dis-
sertation and was subsidized
by the Federation's United
Jewish Charities.
"When I arrived here, there
was a lot of talk about this
book, and a lot of things al-
ready going on with it," says
Mandel. "The project took
about ten years to complete
and, obviously, it's a book of
great importance."
Even so, Mandel concedes
that the Press may have
under-estimated the book's
marketability. Chances are
good, he says, that The Jews
of Detroit will soon go into a
second printing.
A sequel is already in the
works, which would cover the
social and economic history of
Detroit Jews from 1914 until
the present, and which would
also be underwritten by the
UJC. University of
Michigan-Dearborn history
professor Sid Bolkosky has
been teamed with Wayne
State classics professor
Matthew Schwartz to write
the second volume. Mandel
says he is looking forward to
a 1989 publication date.
"We're planning to make
this second volume more of a
community event," he says.
"We'd like to have travelling
exhibits of the book's photos
and illustrations at various
synagogues and Jewish in-
stitutions in the area. We'd
also like to have the authors
give a number of public lec-
