Theoretical Prospectus

  • Robert J. Brym


In 1903 Minister of the Interior Plehve rank-ordered the four most serious issues plaguing the Russian Empire: the agrarian problem, the Jewish question, the intellectual radicalism spawned by the school system and the condition of the working class. In terms of historical significance the subject matter of this book requires little justification, for Russian Jewish Marxist intelligenty1 stood at the intersection point of these four problems. They forged the ideologies of Labour Zionism, Bundism, Menshevism and, to a much lesser degree, Bolshevism. They were both products and key architects of socio-historical changes which permanently altered the texture of social life in Russia, the Middle East and therefore the world.
