Russia Gathers Her Jews
The Origins of the "Jewish Question" in Russia, 1772–1825
John Doyle Klier
Klier offers an important new analysis of Russia's early acquisition of, attitudes toward, and administration of its Jewish population. He argues that the Russian response to the Jewish Question was based less on a tradition of religious antipathy than on the failure to develop a consistent, well-articulated policy in the face of a new and unusual problem. This failure led to ineffective social legislation and became the legacy of Russia's first encounter with the Jews.
