John Doyle Klier's pioneering publications on the relations between Jews and the Russian social order - on topics such as public opinion, governance, conversion, Russification politics, antisemitism, and pogroms - have infl uenced an entire generation of new scholarship. 'Jews in the East European Borderlands, ' a collection of essays honoring Klier's life and work, brings together some of the most innovative scholarship in the fi eld. Focusing on the complex, often violent, entanglements between Jews and Russians, historians and literary scholars critically reassess the artifacts of high culture, including Yiddish and Russian prose and poetry, as well as dimensions of daily life, including letter-writing, diaries, the work of philanthropy, photojournalism, and the mass circulation press

MEDIA REVIEWS
"This volume . . . is a real bonanza for scholars of Russian-Jewish history. The essays are of high quality overall, and the book may serve as a mirror of what is happening now in the field of Russian-Jewish history and literature. . . . Essays such as these help brand the field as more than merely a subfield of Russian or Jewish history, but as a high-quality discipline in its own right."--Brian Horowitz, Professor of Russian and Chair of Jewish Studies, Tulane University "Slavic Review (Vol. 72, No. 3, Fall 2013) "
"Jews in the East European Borderlands offers a dazzling cornucopia of pathbreaking scholarship on Russian Jewish history and culture. It is at once a fitting celebration of the life's work of a pioneering scholar and a moving tribute to his enduring influence."
