"An outstanding work. Skillfully navigating between biography and wider historical analysis, Karlip's book stands out for its texture, passion, and range. The Tragedy of a Generation will take its place as a masterpiece of Eastern European Jewish history."
David Myers, University of California, Los Angeles
"The Tragedy of a Generation is an exceptionnally important book. Karlip marvelously and convincingly describes the crisis of a group of Eastern European Jewish intellectuals who could no longer embrace modernity nor return to faith."
Dan Diner, Hebrew University of Jerusalem and Simon Dubnow Institute, Leipzig University
