Translator's Preface
It isn't my goal to expatiate in those prefatory feedback at the current paintings and its writer. A heritage of the Jews in Russia and Poland from the pen of S. M. Dubnow wishes neither justification nor suggestion. The wish of a piece of this type has lengthy been keenly felt by way of these drawn to Jewish existence or Jewish letters, by no means extra keenly than to-day while the flare of the area conflagration has thrown into ghastly reduction the tragic plight of the biggest Jewry of the Diaspora. As for the writer, his energy of greedy and featuring the extensive points of normal Jewish historical past and his lifelong, painstaking labors within the specific box of Russian- Jewish background healthy him in singular degree to deal with the duty to which this paintings is dedicated.
