This chapter studies The Jews in Poland and Russia (1984), which was edited by Gershon David Hundert and Gershon C. Bacon. Hundert and Bacon have with great care and assiduousness produced a volume which puts in their debt all those who labour in the field of East European Jewish studies. These bibliographic essays constitute a thoughtful and highly professional summing up of modern scholarship on Jewish life in the Polish–Lithuanian Commonwealth from the Middle Ages to the end of the 18th century, in the lands of partitioned Poland (except Prussia), in the Russian empire in the 19th and early 20th centuries, and in Poland and the USSR up to the present decade. As the editors point out, the volume is comprised of two books bound as one: Hundert's account of scholarship on the Jews in Poland–Lithuania from the 12th century to the first partition and Bacon's on the subsequent history of the Jews of Poland and Russia. Hundert's account is neatly divided into six parts: reference aids, surveys, studies of the autonomous Jewish institutions, local histories, ‘histories by period’, and cultural and religious history. Bacon's half discusses general and reference works, and then each of the major periods of East European Jewish history.
