    Overview

    Summary
    "This collection of academic articles in three languages, English, Russian, and Yiddish, covers in a comprehensive manner the history and culture of the Jewish societies in the Far East, geographically close, yet existing in very different political systems. The collection also analyses the mechanisms they developed for self-preservation, as well as the 'Jewish question' in the Far-Eastern perspective, which, during the twentieth century, linked together the history of Russia, China, Japan, Poland, Germany, and other countries"--Cover p. [4].
