Synopses & Reviews

Book News Annotation:

In the context of Cold War politics, Feingold (history, emeritus, City U. of New York), author of The Jewish People in America series, traces the Soviet Jewry movement's struggle to win the right to emigrate. Drawing largely on the American Jewish Historical Society's archives, he credits Israel with backing the movement and American Jewry with playing the decisive role--despite internal divisions--in getting Gorbachev to let their people go. Illustrations include a poster imploring: "Is it going to take another miracle to lead the Jews out of Russia?" The glossary begins with "aliyah," Hebrew for immigration to Israel.
