Slavonic and East European Review

"The author describes little-known pogroms and disturbances in rural Lithuania, using first-hand accounts, rare documents, newspapers and memoirs in five languages (Lithuanian, Polish, Russian, Hebrew and Yiddish). With this material, Professor Staliūnas tries to reconstruct why a pogrom started, what actually occurred, and retrieve the various reactions at the time.I liked this book a great deal... It doesn’t offer a new vision of pogroms, but it does ask for more careful examination of the pogrom contexts, including the identities of agents and victims... It is a fine study that can serve as a model for historians of pogroms."
