About this Item: Princeton, NJ; Kingston Press, 1986. Hardcover. Publishers boards. 8vo. Xli, 143 pages. 24 cm. First edition. Translation of "Evrei v Rossii. " Originally written by innovative novelist Nikolai Leskov and translated by Prof. Harold Schefski. An important discussion of the situation for Jews in pre-Revolutionary Russia. "Despite the ambivalent attitude of his stories and some of the suspect activities of his youth, Leskov deserves recoginition [sic] as an important defender of Russian Jews based on his pamphlet ‘The Jews in Russia. ’ Since the voice of religious tolerance has been rare in the course of human history, we deem it a valuable contribution to present Leskov’s publicist brochure on the Jews here for the first time to readers of English, not only as a worthy monument to a great writer, but also as a concrete example of the ultimate goodness and generosity of mankind. " (xxxiii, Schefski, Introduction) Subjects: Jews -- Russia. Jews -- Legal status, laws, etc. -- Russia. Antisemitism -- Russia. Russia -- Ethnic relations. Ex library with usual markings. Light shelf wear and rubbing. Text block clean and fresh. Very good condition. (EE-6-7a). Seller Inventory # 32397
