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 which is attributed to various causes.
