This chapter studies Regina Renz's Small-Town Society in the Kielce Province and Krzysztof Urbański's The Jews of Kielce. Renz begins her study of small-town society in the Kielce region with a very useful introductory discussion of the sociological and historical literature devoted to the problems of defining a miasteczko and formulating a proper conceptual framework for their study. She ignores, however, the small body of literature devoted to the issue of the shtetl. Urbański's monograph on the Jews of Kielce suffers from the same problem: the author apparently does not read Yiddish or Hebrew and could not avail himself of such useful sources at the Kieltser tsaytung or the two memorial books that have appeared on Kielce. In many places, the author's unfamiliarity with east European Jewish history undercuts the authority of his assertions.

Keywords:   Regina Renz, Krzysztof Urbański, Jews, Kielce region, miasteczko, shtetl, east European Jewish history
