520 |a In the past twenty years almost three-quarters of a million Russian Jews have emigrated to the West. Their presence in Israel, Europe and North America and their absence from Russia have left an indelible imprint on these societies. The emigrants themselves, as well as those who stayed behind, are engaged in a struggle to establish their own identities and achieve social and economic security. This volume brings together an international assembly of experts - historians, sociologists, demographers and politicians - in order to assess the nature and magnitude of the impact created by this emigration and to examine the fate of those Jews who left and of those who remained. Their wide-ranging perspectives contribute to creating a variegated and complex picture of the recent Russian Jewish emigration.
