Description

This series is published yearly by the Institute of Contemporary Jewry at The Hebrew University of Jerusalem. It is edited by Jonathan Frankel, Peter Medding, and Ezra Mendelsohn, all distinguished professors of history at The Hebrew University. The volumes include symposia, articles, book reviews, and lists of recent dissertations by major scholars of Jewish history from around the world. Among the topics examined in this volume are the transformation of Russian Jewish communal life; Habsburg Jewry and its disappearance; the Bolsheviks and British Jews; and the Palestinian labor movement. This diverse collection is one of the first attempts to examine the over-all impact of the First World War and the Russian revolution on the Jewish people.show more
