Jews in Soviet Culture is the first authoritative book on Jewish contributions to Soviet culture, covering the fields of literature, painting, sculpture, music, philosophy, and Oriental studies. Unlike other works on Jews in the Soviet Union that deal mainly with political history--especially with discrimination and repression--this book focusses on the creative role of Jews in various aspects of Soviet culture and civilization. This is a substantial contribution to modern Jewish studies, Soviet studies, and European cultural history. The contributors, several of whom have recently emigrated to the West, are experts from a variety of cultural fields. The volume is a painful but useful reminder that the cultural life of a people and a nation continues--sometimes in harmony, other times at odds--but it continues.
