Stalin's forgotten Zion : Birobidzhan and the making of a Soviet Jewish homeland : an illustrated history, 1928-1996 by Robert Weinberg( Book )

18 editions published between 1998 and 2000 in English and French and held by 476 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In 1934 the Soviet government established the Jewish Autonomous Region in a sparsely populated area some five thousand miles east of Moscow. Located along the Sino-Soviet border, the Jewish Autonomous Region, popularly known as Birobidzhan, was designated as the national homeland of Soviet Jewry. The creation of Birobidzhan was part of the Kremlin's effort to establish an enclave where secular Jewish culture rooted in the Yiddish language and socialist beliefs could serve as an alternative to Palestine and resolve a variety of perceived problems besetting Soviet Jews. Birobidzhan still exists today, but despite its continued official status Jews represent only a small minority of the inhabitants of the region." "Drawing on documents from archives in Moscow and Birobidzhan, as well as photograph collections never seen outside Birobidzhan, this book explores both the Kremlin's efforts to create a socialist Jewish homeland and the reasons for the failure of the Birobidzhan experiment. The story of the Soviet Zion sheds light on a host of important historical and contemporary issues regarding Jewish identity, community, and culture. The history of Birobidzhan provides an unusual point of entry both to the "Jewish question" in Russia and to an exploration of the fate of Soviet Jewry under Communist rule."--Jacket
The revolution of 1905 in Odessa : blood on the steps by Robert Weinberg( Book )

9 editions published in 1993 in English and held by 452 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Robert Weinberg examines the tumultuous events of the 1905 Revolution in Odessa, the fourth-largest city in the Russian Empire at the turn of the twentieth century, and explores why workers in Odessa were the driving force in the near-toppling of autocratic rule. Weinberg offers a compelling analysis of labor's militancy and politicization in 1905 and provides insights into the social dynamics of labor activism in late Imperial Russia. He pays close attention to how the intersection of national developments, local events, and the workers' daily experiences prompted Odessa workers to claim rights of citizenship, challenge authority, and assert greater control over their working lives. The book also sheds light on the notorious Jewish Question in tsarist Russia and the impact of ethnic conflict on the events of 1905. Jews constituted one-third of Odessa's population, and the bloody October pogrom that left hundreds dead reveals how ethno-religious tensions affected the labor movement and influenced the outcome of the revolution in Odessa. By demonstrating the intricate relationship among labor unrest, politics, and anti-Semitism, The Revolution of 1905 in Odessa enriches our understanding of the multifaceted dimensions of revolution in the Russian Empire

Blood libel in late imperial Russia : the ritual murder trial of Mendel Beilis by Robert Weinberg( Book )

10 editions published between 2012 and 2014 in English and held by 137 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"On Sunday, March 20, 1911, children playing in a cave near Kiev made a gruesome discovery: the blood-soaked body of a partially clad boy. After right-wing groups asserted that the killing was a ritual murder, the police, with no direct evidence, arrested Menachem Mendel Beilis, a 39-year-old Jewish manager at a factory near the site of the crime. Beilis's trial in 1913 quickly became an international cause célèbre. The jury ultimately acquitted Beilis but held that the crime had the hallmarks of a ritual murder. Robert Weinberg's account of the Beilis Affair explores the reasons why the tsarist government framed Beilis, shedding light on the excesses of antisemitism in late Imperial Russia. Primary documents culled from the trial transcript, newspaper articles, Beilis's memoirs, and archival sources, many appearing in English for the first time, bring readers face to face with this notorious trial."--Publisher's Web site

Worker organizations and politics in the revolution of 1905 in Odessa by Robert Weinberg( )

9 editions published between 1985 and 1992 in English and held by 17 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In 1905 Odessa workers shifted from a seeming indifference toward national politics in January toward the defense of workers' Empire-wide political goals by December. Beginning the year with a refusal to protest Bloody Sunday, Odessa workers ended by striking in support of Petersburg workers and challenging tsarist authority by forming their own Soviet of Workers' Deputies. They recognized that the granting of significant political reforms, especially the right to assemble and organize without government or employer interference, would be needed if workers were to attain and preserve improved working conditions. Political liberation became an integral element in their struggle to achieve economic improvements, and they agitated for political reforms so they could continue their struggle for better conditions in an atmosphere free of government and employer harassment and obstruction. It was the workers' acknowledgment of the intimate connection between material improvements and civil liberties, between economics and politics, that served as the driving force behind much of the organized activity of labor in Odessa during 1905. By the end of the year, Odessa workers were committed to the radical transformation of the autocratic order as they struggled to acquire control over their lives as workers and citizens
