Editorial Reviews


‘This important and impressively researched political biography, contributes greatly to our understanding of the lives of east European nationalist leaders and the issues they championed.’

(Sean Martin H-Poland, January 2015)

‘Weiser’s book is to be commended for its meticulous historical research.’

(Gali Drucker Bar-Am Jews and Their Foodways: Studies in Contemporary Jewry, an annual vol 28: 2015)

Jewish People, Yiddish is an especially important reminder of just how much “Russian Jewish” history cannot be told without sustained attention to the large Jewish population that lived in Russian Poland, one of the empire’s least digestible and most important regions, and to the numerous other Russian Jews outside Congress Poland.’ (Kenneth B. Moss The Journal of Modern History, Vol. 84:2:2012)

Top Customer Reviews

Format: Hardcover
This is a superb work on topic that relatively few people will engage, but if you are interested in the Jewish experience in Eastern Europe, the subject of this book is important, and the writing and research are superb. Weiser is in the tradition of Roskies and Wisse in preserving and illuminating Yiddish culture and politics in the first three decades of the 20th century.
