Politics, Order, and the Dialectics of Jewish Modernity

(p.261) Conclusion
Barricades and Banners
Stanford University Press

Violence repeatedly erupted and threatened Jewish residents of towns and cities throughout the Russian Empire. As political unrest continued, many Jews found themselves searching for stability and order in early-twentieth-century Warsaw. Because they were labeled as traitors, suspected of hostile intentions, and periodically intimidated by threats of political violence, Jewish residents of Warsaw turned to their own politics of isolation to create communities that were equally tenable and potentially redemptive in confusing and chaotic times. This concluding chapter highlights the Jewish search for order and community, the subsequent turn to modern political ideologies and the inherently dialectical nature of modern Jewish politics.
