Summary:
Between 1917 and 1921, as revolution convulsed Russia, Jewish intellectuals and writers across the crumbling empire threw themselves into the pursuit of a "Jewish renaissance." Here is a brilliant, revisionist argument about the nature of cultural nationalism, the relationship between nationalism and socialism as ideological systems, and culture itself, the axis around which the encounter between Jews and European modernity has pivoted over the past century.
Contents:
The time for words has passed
The constitution of culture
Unfettering Hebrew and Yiddish culture
To make our masses intellectual
The liberation of the Jewish individual
The imperatives of revolution
