Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This book examines the intersection of urban society and modern politics among Jews in turn of the century Warsaw, Europe's largest Jewish center at the time. By focusing on the tumultuous events surrounding the Revolution of 1905, Barricades and Banners argues that the metropolitanization of Jewish life led to a need for new forms of community and belonging, and that the ensuing search for collective and individual order gave birth to the new institutions, organizations, and practices that would define modern Jewish society and politics for the remainder of the twentieth century.

Synopsis:

This book examines the impact of the Revolution of 1905 on the nature and contours of community and self among Jews (and Poles) in Warsaw, Europe's largest Jewish center at the turn of the century.
