This chapter assesses Joseph Marcus's Social and Political History of the Jews in Poland, 1919–1939 (1983). Marcus's book consists of an introductory section in which he sketches the thousand-year history of the Jews in Poland and gives basic information concerning Poland's history between the two world wars. There is also a section on social history, the longest and most specialized section, where the author discusses the problems of social structure, national income, social groups, social institutions, education, demography, housing conditions, social politics, economic politics, and the wealth accumulated by Polish Jews. Finally, there is a section on political history with an extensive chapter on Jewish political parties, three chronological chapters, and two chapters dealing with various related issues such as emigration and the preparations for war. The whole is supplemented by notes, appendices, a bibliography and an index of names and institutions.

Keywords:   Joseph Marcus, Polish Jews, Poland, social history, social institutions, social groups, social politics, political history, Jewish political parties, emigration
