Summary "Henry L. Feingold offers a look at the Russian/Soviet Jewish emigration phenomenon. Although Feingold credits Israel with initiating the struggle for Soviet Jewry and fostering it within American Jewry, he maintains that it was the actions of a secure and confident American Jewry that finally delivered the Jews from the Soviet Union. This book will be of interest to scholars of American Jewish history, the cold war, Israeli studies, and American ethnic and immigration history."--BOOK JACKET.
