A political and sociological study, reflecting both careful scholarship and personal commitment, of the status and life of Polish Jewry before the holocaust: religious traditions; social conditions; the question of assimilation; political movements (communism, socialism, and Zionism); the depth of Polish anti-Semitism, and the Jewish reaction to it.
