This book examines the intersection of three ideologies—socialism, liberalism and nationalism—between Jewish society, Polish politics, and the Russian government in the city of Warsaw during the Revolution of 1905 (1904–1907). It traces modern Jewish politics from the rise and fall of revolutionary parties into its liberal, democratic organization, and the final rise of nationalism. The chapter attempts to address the following issues: the relationship between Jewish communities and the urban environment; why many Jews support various Jewish and non-Jewish anti-government organizations and movements; and lastly, how quasi-democratic reforms change the nature of political organization, action, and thinking among Jews and non-Jews. Overall, the book analyzes the very structures, practices, and discourse that helped shape and create modern Jewish society and politics.

Keywords:   Warsaw, socialism, liberalism, nationalism, politics, Jews
