Let My People Go: The Transnational Politics of Soviet Jewish Emigration during the Cold War by Pauline Peretz

American Jewish mobilization on behalf of Soviet Jews is typically portrayed as compensation for the community's inability to assist European Jews during World War II. Yet Pauline Peretz shows that Israel played a central role in setting the agenda for a segment of the American Jewish community. Her careful examination of relations between the Jewish state and it's diaspora offers insight into Israel's influence over the American Jewish community and whether or not this influence poses a threat to American democracy. Peretz attempts to reintroduce Israel as the missing, yet absolutely decisive actor in the history of the American movement to help Soviet Jews emigrate in difficult circumstances. 

"Pauline Peretz has written an insightful and important book based on exhaustive research and documentation. Her brilliant analysis explains the role of the American and Israeli governments, as well as that of the American Jewish community, in encouraging or discouraging the immigration of Russian Jews to the United States. One of the most important books ever written on this critical period in the history of the Jews."
—William Helmreich, City College of NY and CUNY Graduate Center
