An important new book by one of the best and most renowned scholars in the field. This is an indispensible volume as it provides us with insight into many of the most current literary texts from Russia and explores the major new and old currents now pervading this new Russian literature. "This volume examines contemporary literary texts in which Jewish characters appear, or Jewish issues are discussed, written in the Russian language and published in Russia proper, in the years between 1991 and 2006, by writers currently residing in that country. I investigate how Jews view themselves in the new post-Soviet era, how they are perceived by their Russian neighbours, and how these attitudes have changed with the demise of the Soviet state." (from the Introduction).
