The preparation for this issue coincided with a conference in London which
also served to launch Anthony Polonsky’s important three-volume work
The Jews in Poland and Russia. At the meeting he gave a paper which we
reproduce here, originally delivered at Harvard, describing his own personal
history and how he became engaged in the study of Polish-Jewish history. It
serves also as an introduction to the themes of his book.
