From the close of the Dreyfus Affair to the outbreak of World War II, the French Jewish community was profoundly altered by the immigarion of Eastern European Jews. Bringing with them ethnic definitions of Jewish identity and notions of political activism, the immigrants stimulated a major transformation - demographic, socio-economic, institutional, and ideological - in a French Jewish community that had practiced an ideology of assimilation since the mid-nineteenth century. From Dreyfus to Vichy explores this process of transformation against the backdrop of the increasingly xenophobic France at the beginning of the twentieth century. Includes an Index.
