520    "In his captivating new book, based on new evidence and a 
       series of interviews, author and scholar Maxim D. Shrayer 
       offers a richly journalistic portrait of Russia's 
       dwindling yet still vibrant and influential Jewish 
       community. This is simultaneously an in-depth exploration 
       of the texture of Jewish life in Putin's Russia and an 
       emigre's moving elegy for Russia's Jews, which forty years
       ago constituted one of the world's largest Jewish 
       populations and which presently numbers only about 180,
       000. Why do Jews continue to live in Russia after the 
       antisemitism and persecution they had endured there? What 
       are the prospects of Jewish life in Russia? What awaits 
       the children born to Jews who have not left? "With or 
       Without You" asks and seeks to answer some of the central 
       questions of modern Jewish history and culture"--
