9781618115560: The Russian-Jewish Tradition: Intellectuals, Historians, Revolutionaries (Jews of Russia & Eastern Europe and Their Legacy)

This book argues that Jews were not a people apart but were culturally integrated in Russian society. In their diasporic cultural creations Russia’s Jews employed the general themes of artists under tsars and Soviets, but they modified these themes to fit their own needs. The result was a hybrid, Russian-Jewish culture, unique and dynamic. Few today consider that Jewish Eastern Europe, the “old world”, was in fact a power incubator of modern Jewish consciousness. Brian Horowitz, a well-known scholar of Russian Jewry, presents essays on Jewish education (the heder), historiography, literature and Jewish philosophy that intersect with contemporary interests on the big questions of Jewish life. The book lets us grasp the meaning of secular Judaism and gives models from the past in order to stimulate ideas for the present.

About the Author:

Brian Horowitz is the holder of the Sizeler Family Chair in Jewish Studies at Tulane University in New Orleans. He is an expert on the Jews of Eastern Europe and author of a number of books, including Empire Jews, Jewish Philanthropy and Education in Late-Tsarist Russia, and Russian Idea - Jewish Presence.

Review:

"Brian Horowitz's beautifully written essays illustrate the vibrancy and vicissitudes of Russian Jewish thought in the late Imperial and early Soviet periods. With mastery of Hebrew, Yiddish, Russian, and German sources, he plumbs the depths of philosophy and fiction to convey the subtleties of Jewish intellectual history all the while countering the stereotype of Jewish victimization." (Steven G. Marks, Professor of History, Clemson University)

"Through this learned, wide-ranging collection of articles on a fascinating generation of Jewish intellectuals, historians and authors, Brian Horowitz provides an invaluable set of insights into the many different connections between Russian and Jewish cultures and societies. With articles on S. An-sky, Simon Dubnow, Vladimir Jabotinsky and other key figures, this book will soon become required reading for students and scholars of Russian, Jewish and East European histories." (Dr. Scott Ury, Senior Lecturer, Department of Jewish History Director, Stephen Roth Institute for the Study of Contemporary Antisemitism and Racism Tel Aviv University)

"The book is written in an elegant scholarly style and will be interesting for specialists in Russian Jewish history, literature and philosophy; as well as students and a wider audience. The book significantly increases our knowledge on the Jewish identity in Russia, on Russian Jewish intellectuals, and on Jewish scholarly and educational institutions." (Victoria Khiterer, Millersville University The Russian Review, October 2017 (Vol. 76, No. 4))
