Soviet Jewry And Soviet Policy

By Alfred D. Low
Columbia University Press, 1990
249 pp. $32.50

The subject has many angles: the long history of deeply rooted antisemitism in Russia; the role of Jews in the communist movement; the personal views and prejudices of Lenin, Stalin, Khrushchev and other leaders; the Jews in Soviet nationality policy; Zionism and Soviet policies in the Middle East; emigration and the Jewish issue in Soviet-American relations. Alfred Low's survey covers all of these questions, though in some cases just once over lightly. It is nevertheless a solid study, written with knowledge of the facts, understanding and, where called for, controlled indignation.
