Double Vision is a fascinating examination of contemporary literature in which Jewish characters appear, or Jewish issues are discussed, written in the Russian language and published in Russia proper, in the years between 1991 and 2006, by writers currently residing in that country. Shneidman investigates how Jews view themselves in the new post-Soviet era, how they are perceived by their Russian neighbours, and how these attitudes have changed with the demise of the Soviet state.
Professor Emeritus N.N.Shneidman is the author of the critically acclaimed Jerusalem of Lithuania: The Rise and Fall of Jewish Vilnius, and seven other books.
