Hans Rogger, Government, Jews, Peasants, and land in Post-Emancipation Russia. Two specters: Peasant violence and Jewish exploitation


Hans Rogger covers the topic with an unusual thoroughness. What he reports about Jewish economic exploitation may

fall outside the comfort zone of some readers. However the paper underscores the pressure Jews were facing for survival and 

provides a plausible backdrop for the motivation to emigrate, in spite of all its burdens and challenges.
