Focusing on the complex, often violent, entanglements between Jews and Russians, historians and literary scholars critically reassess the artifacts of high culture, including Yiddish and Russian prose and poetry, as well as dimensions of daily life, including letter-writing, diaries, the work of philanthropy, photojournalism, and the mass circulation press.

Editorial Reviews

"This volume . . . is a real bonanza for scholars of Russian-Jewish history.

Essays such as these help brand the field as more than merely a subfield of Russian or Jewish history, but as a high-quality discipline in its own right."
