Fourteen Soviet public figures talk about their personal and political struggles to change the Soviet system. No bibliography. Cohen (English, Tulane U.) takes an in-depth critical look at three novelists and two poets who stand at the forefront of contemporary Israeli literature. He examines all English translations of these writers' major works from the beginning of their careers to the present. Complementing the critiques are interviews with the five writers. Paper edition (unseen), $17.95. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
