Review

" (...) Building a Diaspora: Russian Jews in Isreal, Germany and the USA is an insightful and thought-provoking study. It makes a valuable contribution to the scholaship, and it is a necessary source for those who study ethnicity, immigration and diasporas in the epoch of globalization." Maria Yelenevskaya, Studies in Contemporary Jewry. An Annual (2008) 266-269.
