Summary "This book explores the many, often overlapping ways in which the Russian Jewish past has been remembered in history, in literature, and in popular culture. Drawing on a wide range of sources - including novels, plays, and archival material - Imagining Russian Jews is a reflection on reading, collective memory and the often uneasy, and also uncomfortably intimate, relationships that exist between seemingly incompatible ways of seeing the past."--Jacket
