Soviet Jewry in the Decisive Decade, 1971-80

Edited by Robert Freedman
Duke University Press, 1984
167 pp. $34.75

Much of this volume is devoted to what happens to Soviet Jews after they emigrate to Israel or America, but the investigations also cover several aspects of Soviet policy, including anti-Semitism in the U.S.S.R. and the place of the emigration issue in Soviet-American relations during the period of détente. The questions remain controversial, but these competent and sober studies should help to hold the controversies more closely to the facts.
