Slavic Review

"A major study of this fascinating chapter in the intellectual and cultural history of the Jews in Russia. the significance of this breakthrough in scholarship is that it takes a post-1989 perspective on basic issues of Jewish identity, assimilation, and antisemitism with a new freedom and a new discovery of texts that were previously ignored or inaccessible. Moreover, Hetényi's interest is that of a comparativist studying a fascinating case of cultural cross-fertilization, a literature that wad both Russian and Jewish at the same time."
