Dark times, dire decisions : Jews and Communism by Jonathan Frankel( )

22 editions published between 2004 and 2005 in English and held by 1,801 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Volume XX of the distinguished annual Studies in Contemporary Jewry examines the extremely varied - and often controversial - ways in which Communism and Jewish history interacted during the twentieth century. While the Communist movement promoted an internationalist worldview that discounted ethnicity in favor of class solidarity, scholars in this volume show the significance of Jewish participation in the movement's history. When and why - a disproportionate number of Jews (by origin, if not belief) identified with the Communist movement, as party members or as sympathizers and "fellow travelers." Other contributors investigate how critical a role Jewish Communists played in the Communist movement and in the Jewish world."--Jacket

Restructuring post-Communist Russia( )

13 editions published between 2004 and 2008 in English and held by 1,038 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Since the fall of the Soviet Union in 1991, the question of 'whither Russia?' has been the source of ceaseless speculation both at home and abroad. In search of answers, twelve highly qualified scholars examine the complex interplay between continuity and change that has marked developments in Russia under the leadership first of Boris Yeltsin and now of Vladimir Putin. Analsying the recent past, they also peer into the country's future. In his introduction to the volume Peter Rutland asks whether we are witnessing the gradual entrenchment of parliamentary democracy, the slow return to autocracy or mere political stagnation. Restructuring Post-Communist Russia poses the fundamental questions while providing the information and analysis needed to give the (at least, preliminary) answers
Crisis, revolution, and Russian Jews by Jonathan Frankel( )

15 editions published between 2008 and 2010 in English and held by 853 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This collection of essays examines the politicization and the politics of the Jewish people in the Russian empire during the late tsarist period. The focal point is the Russian revolution of 1905, when the political mobilization of the Jewish youth took on massive proportions, producing a cohort of radicalized activists - committed to socialism, nationalism, or both - who would exert an extraordinary influence on Jewish history in the twentieth century in Eastern Europe, the United States, and Palestine."--Jacket
Prophecy and politics : socialism, nationalism, and the Russian Jews, 1862-1917 by Jonathan Frankel( Book )

36 editions published between 1981 and 2011 in 5 languages and held by 709 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the period from 1881 to 1917 socialist movements flourished in every major centre of Russian Jewish life, but, despite common foundations, there was often profound and bitter disagreement between them. This book describes the formation and evolution of these movements, which were at once united by a powerful vision and sundered by the contradictions of practical politics. -- Provided by publisher

Vladimir Akimov on the dilemmas of Russian Marxism, 1895-1903: The Second Congress of the Russian Social Democratic Labour Party [and] A short history of the Social Democratic Movement in Russia by Vladimir Petrovich Makhnovet︠s︡( Book )

28 editions published between 1969 and 2009 in English and Russian and held by 545 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Vladimir Akimov was the leading spokesman for the 'Economists' in Russia in the early twentieth century. This group of Marxists rebelled in 1898 against Plekkanov, causing within the Russian Social Democratic Labour Party a schism which preceded the major split between the Bolsheviks and the Mensheviks in 1903. The two major works of Akimov included in this edition have not been republished since 1969. The first is an analysis of the Party Programme inspired by Plekkanov and Lenin as editors of Iskra. The second is a history of the Russian Marxist movement from the early 1890s to Akimov's day. This was the first history of the movement ever published. Dr Frankel has annotated the texts and provided an important introduction, tracing in general terms the development of Russian Marxism up to 1898 and describing in greater detail the forces which caused the dispute between Plakkanov and Lenin and the 'Economists'

Studies in contemporary Jewry : an annual. 13, the fate of the European Jews, 1939-1945,: continuity or contingency?( )

4 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 520 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Was the Holocaust a natural product of a long German history of Anti-Semitism? Or were the Nazi policies simply a wild mutation of history, not necessarily connected to the past? Or does the truth lie somewhere in between? This latest volume in the acclaimed Studies in Contemporary Jewry series, edited by internationally known scholars at the Hebrew University in Jerusalem, presents essays on the origins of the Holocaust. The works in this volume are diverse in scope and opinion, ranging from general philosophical discourses to detailed analyses of specific events, and often reflecting the divergent ideologies and methods of the contributors. But each adds to the whole, and the result is a fascinating panorama that is sure to be indispensable to all students and scholars of the subject

The Damascus affair : "ritual murder," politics, and the Jews in 1840 by Jonathan Frankel( Book )

13 editions published between 1996 and 1997 in English and held by 434 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In February 1840 an Italian monk and his servant disappeared in Damascus. Many Jews in that city were charged with ritual murder and tortured until they "confessed." The case turned into a cause celebre across much of the Western world, even becoming a factor in the major diplomatic conflicts of the period. Jews in many countries groped for ways to save the surviving prisoners in Syria and their own good name. A Jewish delegation led by Sir Moses Montefiore and Adolphe Cremieux was sent to the Middle East in the hope of discovering the real murderers. Jonathan Frankel assesses the affair as a factor in European and Jewish politics, as a chapter in Jewish history and historiography, and as the stuff of radically conflicting myths - myths that eventually fed into the extraordinary events of the mid-twentieth century: the Holocaust and the establishment of the state of Israel. This is the first book since the 1840s to analyze the Damascus affair

The Soviet regime and anti-Zionism : an analysis by Jonathan Frankel( Book )

2 editions published in 1984 in English and held by 50 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Asserts that Stalin's policy toward the Jews after 1947 marked a fundamental change in the Soviet attitude to Zionism. Lenin's theory of Zionism as a bourgeois ideology was replaced by an anti-Zionist ideology which masks the crudest forms of official antisemitism. Examines Soviet publications (press and books), concluding that the "evil" connotations of Zionism peaked between 1967-70, in 1976, and 1979-81 in direct connection with the Six Day War, Soviet pro-Arab and anti-Israel policy, and Soviet anti-emigration propaganda. Remarks on the use of Soviet Jews in the anti-Zionist campaigns, the attempts to link Zionism to Nazism, and allegations of a world Zionist conspiracy. Distinguishes a division of opinion concerning Zionism since the mid-1970s, between a moderate quasi-Leninist school and a neo-Stalinist one promoting violent anti-Zionism, with openly antisemitic features. Includes statistics and graphs on the number of anti-Zionist and antisemitic articles and books published between 1960-80
