Over one and a half million Jews left the Soviet Union from 1987-92, when it ended: this account of their movement surveys the strategies of the Israeli and American Jewish establishments in moving these citizens to new places. FROM EXODUS TO FREEDOM: A HISTORY OF THE SOVIET JEWRY MOVEMENT surveys the movement before 1985 and in America as well as the Soviet Union, tracing its evolution, basic concepts, and political splits which caused it to change and face troubles. The political emphasis, along with tactics and insights on choices, makes for an important, revealing guide.
