This English version is completely revised, and the author has the scope to trace Tsarist policy from its Polish heritage in the 18th century up to 1917. It is shown therein how these attempts to "reform the Jews" ironically evolved into the basis of an anti-capitalist anti-semitism. Anti-semitism thus developed into a weapon against social and constitutional change. The Jews were singled out as the perpetrators of change and modernization, and the Black Hundreds army officers came to persecute them in the defence of a pre-capitalist "reactionary utopia". This book sheds light on the social situation of the Jews, and deals with their reaction to an oppressive regime and the pogroms. The pogroms and legal discrimination, official and unofficial Judeophobia can be interpreted as a reactionary utopia of the agrarian, antiurban, antibourgeois, anticaptiatlist sections of government and society. Russian antisemitism can be seen as an accompaniment to the industrial takeoff.
