This lively, moving narrative provides the first comprehensive account of the immigration of nearly 500,000 Soviet Jews to the US between 1967 and 1997. By weaving a wide variety of immigrant voices and photographs together with historical, journalistic, social service, and psychological studies of Soviet Jewish immigration, Annelise Orleck offers a thorough and highly readable introduction to the history, politics, and culture of this important new American population. Topics covered include the varied reasons for their exodus from the Soviet Union, their experiences in the US, the communities they have created, and the cultural problems they have encountered. Orleck dispels stereotypical notions about Soviet Jewish immigrants by exploring the tremendous social, political, and cultural diversity of the nearly half million Soviet Jews now living in the US.
