Abstract

t h e early history of the Jewish community and t h e J u d e o p h o b i a that fueled the pogrom of 1881 and the Beilis Affair of 1911. The chapter on recreation, the arts, and the popular culture is a model of how to re- search and write a genre of history that many historians find difficult to craft well. By culling the back p a g e s of Kiev's newspapers and imaginatively consulting a variety of other sources, Hamm presents a multifaceted view of daily life that ranges broadly from high culture, holidays, and festivals to strolling, the tavern, and the "subculture of vio- lence." The pulse of the people c o m e s alive in these pages, testifying to the varied in- terests and pursuits of this culturally diverse community. This is a very fine writing that makes for fascinating and rewarding reading. Chapters 7 and 8 deal in considerable detail with the dynamics of the Revolution of 1905 a s it played itself out in Kiev. The centerpiece of the drama is the October 18-20 pogrom, to which Hamm devotes an entire chapter. The final
