Abstract

today's Poland with new, pluralistic, and positive conceptions of the Jewish other, is a sign that and the hard work of coming to terms with the centuries of hostility and contempt have only just begun. Dorota Glowacka Contemporary Studies Programme University of King's College, Halifax Crisis, Revolution, and Russian Jews, by Jonathan Frankel. New York: Cambridge University Press, 2009. 324 pp. $85.00. This collection of essays by Jonathan Frankel, written over a span of twentyfive years, is fitting testament to a man whose recent passing deprives us of one of the guiding lights in the field of modern European and Russian Jewish history and politics. This reviewer met Professor Frankel only once, in 2004 on the occasion of a conference held in honor of his retirement from Hebrew University, where he had taught since the mid-1960s. Devoted to the impact of the Russian Revolution of 1905 on Jews in the Russian Empire, the conference celebrated not only Frankel's scholarship but also the high regard and respect that students and colleagues from the United States, Europe, and Russia had for him. A mentor to all who had the good fortune of meeting him, Frankel shared his vast encyclopedic knowledge
