This work by Professor Remennick is a comprehensive and detailed overview of the immigration experience of Russian Jews in the United States, Israel, Canada, and other Western countries. Professor Remennick, a Russian Jew herself, uses a highly engaging and insightful personal writing style to illustrate the multifaceted resettlement experiences of Jews from the former USSR and today's Russia. Because so few books are devoted to the important subject of Russian Jewish immigration experience, this work is especially valuable as the latest and most complete effort in the field.
"Russian Jews on Three Continents" will appeal to both a general audience as well academic professionals who want to learn more about the recent history of Russian Jews in the United States. I also believe the book might be valuable to those with a general interest in the sociology of immigration. As a Russian Jew myself, I was also able to gain a greater insight into my own resettlement experience. Over the last few decades millions of Jews from Russia have enriched the populations of many countries around the globe, yet their personal stories have rarely been heard or documented. I cannot help but feel grateful to the author for bringing a much-needed light to this very important subject.
