"An important contribution to our understanding of the Second World War in Eastern Europe" -Antony Polonsky, author of The Jews in Poland and Russia
As the Nazi Army swept into Eastern Europe in 1939, Richard Fenigsen, a sixteen year-old Polish Jew, fled his hometown and arrived with his family in the Soviet-controlled southeast of Poland. Within months they were deported thousands of miles into the heart of Russia. A singular, poignant portrait of daily life in Russia during World War II, A Long Journey to Russia is an epic adventure at the periphery of a great tragedy, and a testament that the wecoming of strangers is possible even in the darkest of times.

Based on a talk delivered in the weeks following the historic election of Barack Obama,
The State of the Union is a sobering look at whether the new president could turn the euphoria of a nation toward enacting the change his supporters had hoped for. Ever more urgent in its prescience, this powerful and radical analysis of the opportunities for change now stands out as a deeply important book from an equally important moment in American history.
