This book is the first to provide the English reader with a comprehensive study, based on first-hand documentary material, of Soviet policy towards the Jews of the USSR. The first two chapters are devoted to the Soviet theory of nationality and its application to the Jews, to the legal status of Soviet Jewry and to its demographic and social development. Chapters 3–6 pass from theory and laws to the harsh realities imposed by the persistence of anti-Semitism and its exploitation by the regime. The 'core' chapters 7–12 shed light on the internal cultural and religious life of Soviet Jewry; and a final chapter deals with Oriental Jewish communities.
