University of California Press

This chapter places in perspective the problem of Jewish emancipation and integration in late imperial Russia by comparing it to two parallel phenomena: the experience of Jews elsewhere in Europe and the experience of other minorities in the Russian Empire. It highlights the stratifying effects on Russian Jewry of half a century of selective integration, and suggests ways in which the Russian-Jewish encounter in the decades before the Revolution of 1917 prepared the ground for the remarkable place of Jews in early Soviet society.

Keywords:   Jewish emancipation, Russia, Europe, Russian Jewry, selective integration, Revolution of 1917, Soviet society
